further on this.
I now have the same behaviour on a local xterm (on an XP SP1 machine running
xorg Xwin 188.8.131.52-8, rest is latest cygwin). The funny thing is that it
happens in one xterm only, and I cannot reproduce it in others... In fact, I
don't think I resized that xterm yet (started it with xterm -ls -sl 3000 -sb
by the way).
