This is expected. Note that your "redraw" is no such thing - you are
destroying the window and creating a new one.

A feature of the wx.Frame class is that if it has one and only one
child, that child is sized to fill the client area of the frame.
However, this sizing happens in response to size events of the frame
itself, so when you create the new panel, it is shown at its default
size until you resize the frame (or emulate resizing the frame via
SendSizeEvent).
