Hey, all. I have a recurring issue, and finally thought to ask about it.

I use PuTTY to login to my HN. I then use vzctl enter to enter a VPS.
As long as I am in the VPS, I cannot resize my putty window and have the 
VPS's terminal follow it. e.g. if I make the window taller while running 
top, top will not extend to fill the space below; if I'm using vi, vi 
will think that the terminal is the old size and I get weird effects 
trying to edit anything.

Any thoughts on why this happens, or how I can work around it? I've 
tried experimenting with stty and the TERM variable, but so far nothing 
helps.

See http://bugzilla.openvz.org/show_bug.cgi?id=683
Consider updating to vzctl>=3.0.19.
