Why I have to set someting in terminals if I want to run the command as
a script.

I think the problem isn't on the monitor.
The problem is that the output is not everytime the same. And I can't
understand what is the logic for yum to choose what is the line size.

If I send output to a file, the row size is everytime 80 char, but this
is not a good choise.

I found this on the output.py

def _term_width():
    """ Simple terminal width, limit to 20 chars. and make 0 == 80. """
    if not hasattr(urlgrabber.progress, 'terminal_width_cached'):
        return 80
    ret = urlgrabber.progress.terminal_width_cached()
    if ret == 0:
        return 80
    if ret < 20:
        return 20
    return ret

I can't imagine why the limit should be set to 20 or to 80.
I don't know how to change it, but I think that if output is sent to
nonterminal devices, (like files or pipe for examples), the row limit as
to be set to infinite.

I will try to tell to yum developer.
