Description David Woodhouse 2000-12-01 08:03:33 EST
If a window size change occurs while a child is executing, bash2 won't get
the SIGWINCH and won't adjust its idea of the terminal size.

It should use TIOCGWINSZ to check the window size (just like the SIGWINCH
handler does) after anything which could have caused it to miss window size

There is an option to set in bash that changes the behaviour of bash
wrt SIGWINCH. Please look for checkwinsize.
