Fixed by commit 2adafe760a9c45b417727a3f5d9481de26471a8b. "Everything it can" isn't very large; commit 592b3e1bc2a812515c5e2d01f087ec0aa2d4e8e4 raises that from about 4K to about 8K bytes.

Good idea; NB that this will tie into the 'avoid fixed width buffers' cleanup, because at the moment various fields are held in buffers whose size depends on the value passed to -width.

This causes scan to ignore the width of the terminal and display everything it can. Idea by Jerry Peek.
