Hello openssh developers,

Instead of just playing nethack, I've been building a client that
would log in to nethack at and using a pipe to get the login data
from pwsafe directly onto the server.
All of this works brilliantly after playing with some stty magic (full
script in [0]), however, this way the terminal size is burned into
80x24, which is way smaller than my graphical terminal.

Anyway, I proceeded grepping some of the openssh source code and wrote
this patch [1], which I have locally tested with great success.
