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