Description of problem:
If i log in as ROOT I can run SCREEN just fine. Same if I log in as a
user. But ....
If I log in s root and then switch to a user and try to run screen -
"Cannot open your terminal '/dev/tty2' - please check.
Also - in the future - please get changes like UDEV right before
forcing it into the kernel and making us suffer.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Loggin as root
2. su to user
3. run screen
check your permissions on /dev/tty2 and don't make such lame comments
and bugs before you waste my time and make me suffer
