bash sees all lines as 80 chars long

Problem:

(On NT 4.0 SP3. cygwin b20.1)

Open a bash window.

Execute 'stty size' (columns == 80).

Hold down a character - assuming key
repeat, the line breaks or scrolls at
80 chars.

In 'Properties...' dialog resize the
window and its buffer to be 110 chars
wide.

Execute 'stty size' again - it reflects
the change.

However, bash still wraps or scroll lines
at 80 characters.


Question:

Can this behavior be changed (i.e., so
bash will see and act on the changed
line length).  If so, how?

Thanks,
    Wayne
