Doesn't work for me.  kill -WINCH $$ creates the LINES and COLUMNS
values, but any later windows resize doesn't change the values.  And as
mentioned before it also doesn't work in vim.  Adding send_winch_maybe()
to the KEY_EVENT at least changes it at the next keypress.  And there's
no such thing as a mouse event, whatever I do with the mouse.
