It still valid as is. Bacause, if -132 option is specified and the
real sreen is cleared by ESC[?3h and ESC[?3l, mismatch does not occur.
In this case, this patch tries to synchronize the real screen with
the console screen buffer in spite that they are already synchronized,
but there should be no side effects.
