Yes, it is also my impression that the problem is related to the size of
the terminal that is used to reattach as compared to the size of the
original terminal in which it was started.

Andreas: Are you able to reproduce this? Is it possible to fix? This
used to work just fine in BF 1942 and Vietnam (sure enough I got a
garbled curses-output then, but at least the server didn't crash).
