fvwm resize throws off xterm(bash) word wrapping

Sometimes when I resize an xterm in fvwm, bash word wrapping is messed up. I don't know if it's from running a program that uses curses or not. Can anyone help?

Use urxvt instead of Xterm, it is faster (and have an optional daemon mode to load only once), take less ressources and will not be affected by your problem. It is also extendable with perl and have 3x more optional features. Urxvt will keep the wrap in a buffer so it will be restored even if the WM mess it up.
