"is" doesn't appear to be the right tense, since RHEL 3 was released a few years ago and is not the current version.

iirc, cygwin's still distributing xterm patch #202, which is more recent than RHEL 3 (mid-2005). I made improvements to the layout in the latter
part of 2005, so it would for example maximize as expected. On the other hand, it still doesn't re-maximize if the font size is changed while maximized.

an upstream problem in xterm, if it still exits in the current version.
You might want to check that out.  I don't see the problem with konsole.

given that konsole was developed as part of KDE, that's understandable...

Don't get too hung up on my references to KDE and RHEL 3. They were what I had available at the time to test and respond with. The points I wanted to make were that this issue isn't necessarily a Cygwin-specific one and that there may be fixes available in later versions of these tools as a result.
