Bash can update the environment all it wants, but that will not affect
what is seen by a program that's already running. Personally I often
resize the window while psql is running, and I expect that to work.
I'm with Peter on this one: we have used ioctl, and nothing else, to
determine the vertical window dimension for many years now, to the tune
of approximately zero complaints. It's going to take one hell of a
strong argument to persuade me that determination of the horizontal
dimension should not work exactly the same way.
