urxvt: resizing terminal cuts off lines

Bug Description

Binary package hint: rxvt-unicode

I'm using rxvt-unicode's "urxvtc" as X11 terminal.

If I resize the terminal window before text output has already filled a screenful and the terminal has scrolled down a few lines, the text lines already in the window are cut to fit the resized window.

When there has been enough output (so that the scrollbar is not 100% full), then the terminal does the right thing: lines longer than the new terminal width are wrapped around, and no screen content is lost.

I'm using the XMonad tiling window manager, so terminal resize happens automatically all the time, and it gets annoying to lose part of the text.

I'm using rxvt-unicode 0.07-2 on Maverick, but this bug has been there since quite some time.

$ dpkg -l rxvt-unicode
