>How about having it simply do what ctrl-L does?

^L often causes the current position to change, which may be bad
especially if someone accidentally changes the window size, or
several terminals attach to the same GNU screen session, etc.

The fix for this case (press ^L or change the size back, depending
on what you wanted) is easy and the user’s choice, and may just
need to be documented better.

<igli> exceptions: a truly awful implementation of quite a nice idea.
<igli> just about the worst way you could do something like that, afaic.
<igli> it's like anti-design.  <mirabilos> that too… may I quote you on that?
<igli> sure, tho i doubt anyone will listen ;)
