rxvt window size change not detected

Found this problem:

 - start bash in rxvt (C:\cygwin\bin\rxvt.exe -sl 5000 -fn 20 -bg black -fg white -sr -e bash --login 
 - less /etc/passwd
 - maximize the rxvt window
 - quit less (key "q")
 - type a long command line in bash

expected behavior :
 - works fine

actual behavior :
 - the line is wrapped at the width of the windows as it was before maximized and continues in the
same line at first column (a mess, basically)

up to date as of today (13-mar-2008)
