I've noticed that with lynx too; w3m (and just about everything else)
deals fine, it's not that hard...

I'm assuming the bug is triggering an xterm race condition; you could
test this fairly simply, just by having ratpoison sleep for one second
before doing the resize (to be sure xterm has already grabbed the
pty.)  If that works, that points to the race condition.

[To be fair, I haven't looked at the ratpoison source in a while --
but given that, I'm assuming it isn't doing the ICCCM size-hints
exchange, which is how other wm's avoid this...]
