More or less -- it's the secondary buffer in xterm/rxvt, if I remember
the terminology correctly. ncurses programs tend to use it. I don't
have to resize the window to see the problem though. (Or not last time
I investigated -- I couldn't replicate it this morning with libncurses5,
but stuff I was doing on a slink box was still causing it.)
