I've tried it as well but it's extremely difficult to tell whether
the time is updated at step 3 or not, because every system where I
try this (including my iMac, though it now occurs to me that may be
a VNC side-effect, so I should check again when I'm physically in
front of it) sends multiple SIGWINCH at the shell, and there's no way
to capture what happens after only one of them.  Vincent seems to be
getting only a single update after the resize is finished.

} Could be terminal specific in some way, but I got this both with urxvt

} missing.

I attempted to trace through the prompt computation and printing and
had Vincent try adding a fflush() at a likely-looking spot, but that
didn't change anything.  Someone who has a better handle on how the
prompt display is screen-motion-optimized may have to jump in.
