Steps to reproduce:
1. Open gnome-terminal.
2. At the command prompt,
$ while true ; do cat /etc/termcap ; done
3. Resize the terminal window.
4. The terminal region doesn't resize. Occasionally, a crash may be observed.
This is a pathological worst-case scenario, but it happens to me all the
time opening mutt (which enumerates messages as it opens my (large) mbox.)
