At the moment, resizing a map frame in printcomposer changes the scale of the map, even if its manually set.

Usually I like my manually set scale and just want to adapt the map frame. Resetting the scale everytime I change the mapframe a little bit is very tedious. I would really love to see a checkbox, maybe beneath the "Scale" box or "Lock layers for map item" box, to lock the map scale.

You can lock the scale by using a data-defined override as shown in the attached screenshot. A "lock" button would be more user friendly though.
