Description of problem:
SecureCRT does zmodem transfers over SSH.  However, if you do 'rz' to receive 
files while inside a screen session, that shell process hangs and must be 
killed with an kill signal from another screen.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ssh in to box with 'screen' and 'lrzsz' installed.
2. start screen
3. type 'rz'

Actual Results:  Display shows 'rz waiting to receive.**B0100000023be50' and 

Expected Results:  Display shows 'rz waiting to receive.' and SecureCRT pops a 
dialog box to select files to upload.  Barring that, it should at least have a 
more graceful failure than a hang I can't ^C out of.

You will NOT be able to xfer using rz by itself (screen will interpret some of
the escape sequences as being for it) try using rz -e

-e, --escape
              Force sender to escape all control characters; nor-
              mally  XON,  XOFF,  DLE,  CR-@-CR,  and  Ctrl-X are
