Default tmux disable automatic resize

I've been using tmux for some time now, and it's working great for me.

However, there is one annoyance: Every time I attach a session the windows is automatically resized.

I've tried using the aggressive-resize option, but that doesn't seem to have a lot of effect.

Anyone managed to figure this out?

Screen has the exact same behaviour, unless the command is issued in a full-screen (maximised) terminal/putty/whatever session. I've never found out why it did that and how it could be prevented.. Moreover, if I compare two identical PuTTy sessions (only the hostnames differ in the config files), to almost identical FreeBSD 7.2-STABLE installations running the exact same versions of screen, only one session resizes. The other stays the same. Argh!

What do you mean by "resize"?

If I start a tmux session on my home computer, in a Konsole window at 1024x768, then connect to it from my work computer, in a Konsole window at 1280x1024, I get a 1024x768 "window" inside the tmux session, with ......... around the outside. ie, the tmux "window" stays the same size as when it started.

I don't understand the problem, what is resizing exactly? the terminal emulator?

Or are you talking about the status bar thing stealing a line?

Is this commit relevant?

I have a xterm, any size.
# tmux new centerim
[xterm resized]
[dettach tmux (^pd)]

I resize my xterm to any size
# tmux attach
[xterm resized again]

I have this with any program, including tcsh.

I never had this problem with screen, I used screen since FreeBSD 5 orso -- Never even looked at screen configuration either.

I guess CS and I mean the same thing. Suppose I open a PuTTY session in a 800 x 600 window, ssh into a box, and then issue the command 'screen something', that window resizes to something like 200 X 400. It seems that Terminal and xterm don't do that, only PuTTY. And not every PuTTY session behaves the same .. some keep the same window size. I seeem to remember it happened with SecureCRT too, but that's quite long ago.

I never had problems with screen in combination with Putty or SecureCRT either ... :-/

I don't see the behaviour that C.S. describes, but it's probably related to this:
