Well, mc sometimes fail but it has other problems with layout, so I wouldn't
bother about that. It's probably some bug on the way that mc calculates it's
own layout which is not always reproducible.

Moc, on the other side, does *always* resize ok, so, I am inclined to think
that the problem lies in the client app, and not xmonad, the terminal or

5.6, it's a non-debug build, using unicode and gpm support (not that gpm
is relevant here, but there you are). mc 4.6.2_pre1 is built with X,gpm and
unicode support. This is Gentoo, so I am 100% that all the apps have been 
built using the same ncurses version, since there's no prepackaged binary
