Shucks, my complaint would be the opposite, that xterms open as 80x30
or so with a tiny font and I have to enlarge the font and resize to
80x60 or 80x66 or something reasonable thereabouts. Five entire
seconds of mousing around! Argh!

Of course the window I'm using now from Win95 spares me that agony:
it's too small but there's no way to change it :( Anyone know of a
better telnet.exe?
