Frequently on unix and windows.  I haven't yet committed the time to
try working on a headless windows server 2008, however :)  My text
editor windows all default to 81 cols to avoid just this issue.

Is a limit even appropriate anymore?  On what basis?  132 chars is one
standard that could be applied.  Perhaps a precommit filter to avoid
issues in the future?
