hmm. before i can see if that works for me, i think i need to solve a
possibly related problem: my LINES and COLUMNS vars don't even make it
into screen. i have `eval resize` near the end of my .bash_profile,
which sets and exports them, so they should show up in any subprocess,
right? i don't have any shell setting in my .screenrc, so screen
should run non-login instances of my regular shell, i.e. bash w/the
.bashrc executed, but not the .bash_profile. nonetheless, after login
but before starting screen, i find that LINES and COLUMNS are set;
after starting screen and checking from inside, i find that they're
not. why are they not getting passed down?
