Description Marc MERLIN 1998-11-29 01:11:00 UTC
Forward of an old unfixed bug report to bugzilla

Screen, as shipped with 5.0, 5.1, and 5.2 doesn't support
SIGWINCH (this means that using mc inside an xterm, resizing
it, and typing CTRL-O twice doesn't resize

This makes screen more or less useless for
I ported the debian diffs against the same tarball and those
diffs work fine.

Comment 1 Derek Tattersall 1998-12-08 16:31:59 UTC
Yes, behaves as reported.  mc does not resize after CTRL-O CTRL-O

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1999-01-20 15:04:59 UTC
This problem has been fixed in screen-3.7.6-1. Recompile from
the source rpm in Raw Hide
	rpm --rebuild screen-3.7.6-1.src.rpm
abd install the binary rpm's if you want the fix.
