Bug#39046: dpkg: dselect crashes when resizing xtrem window

Package: dpkg

Invoke dselect on xterm (or rxvt).  Choose "Select" item and get the list 
of packages. After this resize the window (maximize). dselect crashes and 

dselect: getch failed: Interrupted system call

I have this problem, for example, on 80x24 xterm with 10x20 fonts when
maximizing xterm in 1024x768 video mode. Sometimes deselct does not crashes on
maximizing but crashes when I restore the initial size.
