Re: [3.0.5] patch for resize problem

Oh! Ouch!!

Yes, me too.  My (original, unpatched) zsh 3.0.5 does not have a
problem about "eval $(resize)".  Zsh always set correct LINES and
COLUMNS when I invoke eval $(resize).

But I hope I don't have to invoke "eval $(resize)".  I hope zsh always
set LINES and COLUMNS to right value automatically.

Because I use RPROMPT.  As you know, to use RPROMPT, I must always set
COLUMNS to right value.  To do this, I must invoke "eval $(resize)"
every time when I change the terminal size.  It makes me irritated.

Cool!  It works well!  Thank you Bart.  With this patch, I can say
Goodbye to "eval $(resize)".
