If I make an xterm window running bash smaller and then larger again,

the information visible in the smaller size is visible after

Please read item E11 in the Bash FAQ.

Yes, I read and tried "shopt -s checkwinsize" before I asked this question.
Unfortunately, the problem persists.
Just to be sure: I meant that the old information in the xterm window is not extended by the characters that should be visible again after increasing
the window size.

What do you mean by `the information in the window'?

Bash (really readline) will redraw the current command line using the
new dimensions if you resize while the line is being edited.  Everything
else is out of its hands and up to the terminal emulator.
