Resizing the window is still pretty flaky. One particular current problem is: if you choose a font that fits 80 columns on your screen but not 132, then sending ESC[?3h to switch to 132-column mode will squish the font just enough to fit 132 columns in a full-width window. So far so good; but when you send ESC[?3l to return to 80 columns, really it would be nice if the window was put back the way it started out. Also there's some indication that the squishing doesn't work quite right; first PuTTY expands the window to full width, then it chooses a font size, and then it leaves a big border down each side of the window when that font size fails to fit quite right. Really it should recompute the window size once it knows the font size.
