this sounds like a bug to me ... nano handles resizes just fine today the way 
i'd expect: if my terminal changes size, fully expect nano to handle the new

i dont know anything about vim, but i wonder if simply using its method for

if pasting of text is detected in nano, then it should temporarily turn off
