i have since received two "me too"s, and one suggestion
that COLUMNS and/or LINES were being reset incorrectly; that
person (<firstname.lastname@example.org>) suggested to use the
/usr/openwin/bin/resize command to reset those values, but that
didn't solve the problem either. i'm currently resigned to
just quit each dtterm in which this happens and open a new one;
if i do get any other suggestions, though, i'll definitely post
yet another summary.
