If you resize the terminal window that `less' is displaying its output
in, the paging commands (SPC, b) will page by the new size, not the old
one.

It's possible that old versions of less behaved the way view-mode does
now, but that would have been a _bug_ in less, not something for
view-mode to emulate!

I too find view-mode's behavior in this case pretty annoying...
