Description David Aquilina 2007-05-17 14:31:39 UTC
Description of problem:
xterm will hang when you try to reattach to a screen session on a remote system.
I'm logged into the remote system via ssh. It happens on multiple remote systems
as well - one is an FC6 x86_64 system, the other is an Irix system. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Almost always. If I kill xterm and try again repeatedly, sometimes it will work.
If it does work, xterm will then function normally for as long as the system is up. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start xterm
2. Login to remote system via ssh (simple "ssh hostname") 
3. Attach to a screen session ("screen -dr")
Actual results:
xterm hangs after printing one or two lines of the screen session

Expected results:
xterm should not hang 

Additional info:
This problem does not occur when attaching to a local screen session. This
problem also does not occur on gnome-terminal, so I don't believe this is a
networking or ssh problem.
