Re: cannot start detached sessions (with -m -d) back to back

I can't reproduce this... Trying the following works:


screen -S ses -d -m -p 0 cat
screen -S sys -X quit

Yes, in the end screen was at fault for setting CLOCAL in the pty which

I think the problem may be that in canonical mode, the slave goes to
sleep waiting for input (in tty.c:ttread()) and nothing wakes it up
when the master side is closed. The patch below seems to work, but,
please scrutinize it carefully as I've only tested it lightly and I'm
also operating without a license :)
