If you have the resize command installed on your node
(/usr/X11R6/bin/resize), then try typing

eval `resize`

after you resize the window.  Note that there are back tics around

Well, I guess qsub would have to trap SIGWINCH, call ioctl() again to
get the new winsize, and somehow send the new values through some escape
sequence to pbs_mom.

That last part would require a protocol change.  Maybe we could do this
on 2.3.
