Actually, I've been meaning to work on this, thanks for the reminder...

I found a problem with the patch you submitted...   it only resizes the
xterm if you've specified a "font_132" in your tn5250rc.   (Meaning that
if you prefer to keep the default font in 80 & 132 column mode, the xterm
is too small after it switches to 132 col mode)

However, once I (finally) looked at the code, it was easy to fix.  So,
I've committed these changes to CVS (on sourceforge)

Have a nice day!
