I hope you remembered the window(1) utility when you
imported this change. The window(1) utility provides its own terminal
definition, and when you ssh to other machines in a window, you need the
.termcap entry to work.
A quick look at the code suggests this is to purely set the number of
columns and lines in the window. A lot of applications respect $COLUMNS
and $LINES - would it not be better (and more portable) to set those?
Do you provide a captoinfo utility?
