I've been looking and the problem with xterms appears to be that they
(and konsoles for example) don't export COLUMNS and so the script
assumes that we are on /dev/console and so uses whatever width that is
set too.  There will be a solution - probably really simple - so I'll
have a look as soon as I can.
