Hmmh.. got to try that trick..

The grip also has the following issue: the content under those two lines
is not updated and after channel switching is usually from the
background image. It would be nice to have the resize even without the
grip though, if possible.. i'll see what I can do.

both Xfree86 (4.1 & 4.2) default xterm and aterm (latest I think) work
with me without any problem at all.. and i'm using no scrollbars at all.

Actually, I had some trouble finding out where the code is, but I'll
continue investigating..

If I manage to make a patch I'll send it here (?) even if it will be

probably doesn't matter for this though..
