summary: Reducing window width shouldn't lose information
class: wish: This is a request for an enhancement.
difficulty: fun: Just needs tuits, and not many of them.
priority: low: We aren't sure whether to fix this or not.

It might be nice if reducing the width of a terminal window, then restoring it, didn't gratuitously lose information from the right-hand ends of lines. (Like NiftyTelnet-SSH on the Mac.)

This should be relatively easy (it's already the case for the scrollback).

There should probably be some way of flushing the info off the side of the screen, though; probably the `Clear Scrollback' command.

(cf. `resize-scroll-effects' for the case where the number of rows is changed.)

Audit trail for this wish.
