Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 3652
screen -wipe does not work (screen-3.7.6-9)

Trying to remove dead screens with screen -wipe does not
work. The program says it has removed them, but doing a
screen -list immeaditely after shows they are still present.
To force them to be removed, you have to manually delete the
files from /tmp/screens/S-username/, and then they disappear
from screen -list
can't reproduce here - I start screen, then kill -9 the
screen process. screen -ls shows the Dead socket, and
screen -wipe removes it.
