bug#8763: terminal-emulator mode confines output to 80 columns

From: bugreport . emacs . jog
Subject: bug#8763: terminal-emulator mode confines output to 80 columns
Date: Mon, 30 May 2011 09:22:22 +0200

If emacs is in terminal-mode, it seems to constrain some tools to 80 columns of 
output.  Running "watch" inside an emacs terminal wraps the line:

emacs -nw --eval='(terminal-emulator "*echo nested inside watch*" "watch" 
'"'"'("--interval" "3600" "echo 

The problem is not the watch command, because the following will properly show 
85 x's on one line (outside of emacs):

watch --interval 3600 echo 

Note that the following will correctly show 85 x's on one line (suggesting that 
the problem emacs does not have this problem with all tools):

emacs -nw --eval='(terminal-emulator "*echo only*" "echo"
