Linux Screen command resizing Putty terminal window.


When running the "screen" command from a Windows Putty session, it re-sizes my window.
Is there a way to prevent this from happening?

Code:
man screen
Look at the -A option, this should fix the problem.

Unfortunately no, the -A option does not prevent the resizing of the Putty window.
I start with a 132x35 Putty window, and after running "screen -A" the window resizes to 80x35.
