GNU screen causes resize

    Whenever I attach or start a GNU screen session the iTerm window resizes to width 80.  This is despite whatever I had the screen session at last.  Is there a way to not resize the iTerm window?

      Hi all.

      I think this is a bug in iTerm. I have a similar problem when using "reset" under Solaris 10.

      I sometimes zoom iTerm in order to have a better view on logfiles. When editing the command line in Bash iTerm doesn't properly display the console output because it still seems to break lines at 80 chars, whereas my zoomed iTerm has many more columns. I typed "reset" in an attempt to "repair" things, but this made iTerm to resize as if I had selected "Zoom vertically only" in iTerm (which I DIDN'T select).

      Can anyone confirm this strange behavior and that this is a bug?

        I can't seem to be able to edit my post, so I'm posting a separate message to correct or clarify one thing:

        "... but this made the iTerm _window_ resize as if..."
