Bug#34939: dpkg: dselect kills itself on terminal resize while in the "Select" stage

Package: dpkg

When using dselect in the "select" stage, (when the packages lists are
up, not when the initial help screen is visible), resizing
an X terminal (Eterm specifically, but also occurs in an xterm)
causes dselect to die with:

  dselect: getch failed: Interrupted system call

This also occurs with the version straight out of slink.
