The funny thing is, I've been trying to post that message for 3 hours

I've found (through random experimenting, maybe the termcap people can
explain this) that, if you run screen in an xterm with the size different
from 80x25, the following sequence will make screen adjust its buffer size
to the size of the window:
- '^AS' to split
- '^A^I' to switch windows
- '^AX' to kill the bottom window

Strangely enough, '^AF' (fit) does not work.  Also, the above sequence
only works once, i.e., it won't pick up the new size if the window is
resized.  In fact, the size it picks up is the size of the window at the
time screen was started, so if the window is resized while screen is in
effect, the starting size will be picked up (even if different from
