The scary thing is that in 2014 we still have to occasionally think &
worry about such things.  I, too, run into the odd TUI/CLI that doesn't
pick up a resize properly, for whatever non-deterministic reason.  Sad.

Well, at least there's still a use for that archaic terminal knowledge
we learned 25-35 years ago.
