Description Jens Petersen 2005-05-16 07:58:54 UTC
Description of problem:
It has happened to me too many times that I have locked
the terminal by mistake - eg while using emacs inside a screen
Actual results:
It is too easy to press ^ax or ^a^x.

Expected results:
Would be better if lockscreen was bound to ^aX.

Additional info:
Also in the current screenrc file, some of the binding
are repeated.  Is that intentional?

Comment 1 Petr Rockai 2006-01-17 16:21:19 UTC
The shortcut is changed to ^aX. The bindings are repeated because the example 
user screenrc is cat'd at the end of the /etc/screenrc file, but why is beyond 
me. I will check it out and eventually merge useful changes into 
real /etc/screenrc and get rid of the cat.
