latest CENTOS 7
Steps to Reproduce:
1. screen -t 'dog'
screen title becomes dog
Hello I was just checking on this to see if you needed any feedback. I'm hoping since it is a reduction in functionality since RHEL6 that it might be something easy to re-port back in/fix.
Also one more element. The reason why the bug fix is important is because it can be used to match in a more advanced way versus the screen name. So if you want to attach a screen in RHEL6 you can use the title. You can no longer do this in RHEL7 which is very problematic since it will not set the title appropriately. Screen is still a very useful tool for many of us.
