Does this happen with 3.9.10-x?
Comment 2 Phil Copeland 2002-04-01 16:03:28 EST
3.9.11 was a mistake (kill certain german person)
3.9.10-1 which is the correct version for the release works as expected

Oh one thing more,  it's crtl-\ not '\' on it's own for 3.9.10-1
if you want differing behaviour just edit /etc/screenrc to suit

Comment 3 Joseph Kotran 2002-04-01 16:09:11 EST
Revision 3.9.10 does indeed work.  However, in screen revision 3.9.8-3 (Red Hat
7.1) the command is Ctrl+a \.  I don't know what revision this changed in or
even why, but I just wanted to document that it has changed.
