Should a terminal really try to fix problems of applications running in it?

Right. That doesn't mean they are buggy with SIGWINCH though
(nor does it necessarily mean resending SIGWINCH would solve
this problems and not cause new problems)
A clean application doesn't need this. What it does mean is,
they should be replaced ;)
But we leave real world examples here, so anything is thinkable.
I still would prefer to make the workaround (known to cause
problems in rare cases) optional.
And, yes, it's good it revealed a bug in bash-4 :)
