Although it requires foresight... you can run your application (shell,
mutt, irc, etc) through screen.
screen is one of the unix tools I could not live without.
Think of screen as vnc for terminals. You can reconnect to a running
screen session from any terminal, you can detach from it and leave it
dormant, or connect to it from multiple terminals concurrently. It
handles varied terminal sizes and termcap configurations, and can be
used to run multiple programs in split or overlapping windows.
