What about SIGWINCH? Without that, your programs will be extremely antisocial.

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but as someone who uses terminals 
extensively, *please* use curses! Or at least termcap, which is easier to 
interface to, but is much more irritating to use. But either way, you'll 
still need --- somehow --- to trap SIGWINCH...
