The feature is about resizing with mouse. If you want to automatically 
resize on initial load you may need to use something like 
RTE.default.RTEWidthOverride = 100%
RTE.default.RTEHeightOverride = 500px

> Also I cannot resize it by myself with the mouse. I see no resize mouse 
> cursor.
1. After updating your installation, you need to clear the RTE cache and 
the browser cache.
2. If you check "Make Textareas resizable" in User settings, you should 
see a little handle at the south-east corner of the RTE, below the 
status bar, as well as at the south-east corner of the textarea when in 
text mode.
