found some code that assumes a terminal will be no bigger than 999x999

hmm, I wonder..

so yeah, I actually did file a bug, I hope they don't hate me

I think my method proposed in there will allow detecting any possible terminal size, although if the terminal gets big enough (perhaps moon-sized), it could take some time

@joeyh Did I ever tell you of the 2x3 pixel font I made to preview layouts on a Hercules graphics card?

yeah, and there are 16k monitors already

xterm's resize used to also assume 999x999 max, now it uses 9999x9999 max, so they'll have to keep bumping it
