tmux screen resize not reaching shell, missing ctrl-keys

Please note, recent packages with tmux have big problems with screen resizing not going all through to the running program (e.g. the bash command interpreter). Workaround is either install a 1.9-ish version or use "resize" in the shell all the time.
Other problem is if resize isn't the issue, then certain Ctrl-Keys don#t go through. Example is "cat - > filename" and you hit "Ctrl-D" then nothing happens. It should say EOF and close the file and cat program.
I've chatted with the programmers but I didn't get a propper solution until now. If someone wants to volunteer and help progamming / debugging for a fix - that would be fabulous.
