# Steps to reproduce:
1. Open screen.
2. Press (C-a A) to bring up the prompt to change the window's title.
3. Resize the terminal window.
4. Observe the "Aborted because of window size change" message.
5. Press (C-a A) again.

# Expected behavior:
The prompt to change the window's name appears.

# Actual behavior:
Nothing happens.

# Workarounds:
You can still bring up the command line with (C-a :) and use the `title` command to rename the window.
