Rxvt started like this
rxvt -g 96x48
yields a console of 96 columns by 48 rows,
However, "stty size" still reports
and "stty -a" reports
speed 38400 baud; rows 25; columns 80; line = 0;
intr = ^C; quit = ^\; erase = ^H; kill = ^U;
eof = ^D; eol = M-^?; eol2 = M-^?; start = ^Q;
stop = ^S; susp = ^Z; rprnt = ^R; werase = ^W;
lnext = ^V; flush = ^O; min = 1; time = 0;

And sure enough the Midnight Commander appears in
its familiar 80x25 size.
When I enter "stty rows 96" or "stty lines 48"
stty: standard input
What does this mean??
I tried adding
to my Rxvt terminfo database, but that didn't help
either. (No, I did not forget to enter "tic rxvt.ti".)
Is it necessary to add
to rxvt.ti in order get a working non-standard
dimension?? (Probably not. Other changes I made to
rxvt.ti were effective upon recompiling, causing
the desired result, so there is noghting wrong
with the terminfo mechanism.)
How can I get Rxvt to actually report the correct
size to applications like MC??
I'm NOT on the list, so please reply to my own address.
Ps. MC builds and works fine on Cygwin32.
