very old versions of ncurses (before 1.9.9e) do not have resizeterm.

hmm - that's a possibility (interfering with the SIGWINCH results).

I didn't actually say when the cutoff was - I've been rotating from
one program to another with occasional excursions.  If I'm doing small
changes then I tend to work on those while I'm looking at the to-do items
from the mailing list, but if it's a larger change (like this one), I'll
start on my changes before I look at the to-do items (otherwise I'll not
get it done).  In the latter case, it makes the time between patches

Not exactly an alpha test - I did test and see that most of the
differences between old/new versions seemed to be in the ncurses area.
