This is good. Sorry I didn't think about the patch having drifted over the years and rebase it first myself.

Thanks, Alexander!

Thanks again for reminder and patch.
It's in git now ("screen-v4" and "master" branches).

Thanks for patch!

Unfortunately this patch is old and it can't be applied to actual version of screen. I will need to change it a bit before to apply. I think in the next few days it will be in git.

This is a simple documentation fix to match screen's actual behavior.

I attached a patch, and also have it here:
