Bug#40700: dpkg: Resizing dselect in xterm or rxvt causes crash

Package: dpkg
Severity: important

When running dselect in an xterm (or rxvt) window, I go to '2. [S]elect', then
when I'm at the selection screen if I resize the window, dselect immediately
crashes with the error 'dselect: getch failed: Interrupted system call'. This
has always happened to me since I installed the system a few months ago. I'm
running the most current potato, and I apt-get upgrade every day or two.
