Opaque resizes under NT cause trouble when the user changes their mind and carefully drags the window back to the way it started out: the contents of the screen have been trashed and no resize event is sent to the server. Perhaps redisplay during resizing should be reimplemented in a way that doesn't change the terminal buffer's size at all.
