ImagePadding and PlotRange anomaly

Dear All,

when I manipulate the y range of plots it is often a problem that the
plot size (the actual range displayed) changes size due to the size of
frameticks. ImagePadding can deal with the problem for some extent,
but definitely cannot solve it. See the attached code, where I
manipulate the left frame scale from a range of {0, 10^10} to {0,
10^20}. This in my machine causes the resizing of the framebox of the
plot at y = 16,y =  17 and y = 18. What is the cause of it? How can it
be eliminated?

Thanks in advance,


 Framed@Plot[x, {x, 0, 4 \[Pi]},
   FrameLabel -> {"x axis", "y axis"},
   PlotLabel -> "Plot label",
   ImageSize -> {400, 400},
   PlotRange -> {{0, 4 \[Pi]}, {0, 10.^y}},
   PlotRangePadding -> Scaled[0.02],
   ImagePadding -> {{Scaled[.07], 0}, {Scaled[.04], Scaled[.01]}},
   AspectRatio -> 1, Axes -> False, Frame -> True,
   BaseStyle -> {FontSize -> 14, FontFamily -> "Times"},
   RotateLabel -> True

 {{y, 17, "y max (10^y)"}, 10, 20, 1, Appearance -> "Labeled"}
