Sometimes (sorry to be so vague) 'screen -r' will clear the terminal and
exit, leaving the tty raw. 'stty sane' and then 'screen -r' almost
invariably works, after that. I haven't managed to reproduce it at will;
it just happens every so often.
well, this helps.
reopen if this doesnt stop with 3.9.9
Just happened again, with screen-3.9.9-1.
I've seen this same problem with screen-3.9.9-3 on the alpha.
In my case, if I log out (I'm running screen on a remote box
I access via ssh) and then back in, it starts working.
(Do reports like this ever get reported back to the upstream maintainer?)
heck, they rarely even get as far as the person the bug was xfered over to
without being notified! (I just came across this bugreport today)
Can you try out with 3.9.11-8 in rawhide for a while and let me know if it still
bails out horribly? I've never encountered this behaviour before in screen, and
I use it a LOT.
I haven't seen this in ages and ages.
Assuming fixed upstream and fixes are in current release. Reopen if appears again.
