The issue is in the detach-attach code-path.

One can trigger this w/o the need to lock the screen.
To reproduce:

$ screen
C-a :layout save default
C-a |
C-a <TAB>
C-a d
$ screen -r

Has anyone had a chance to look into this?

When one creates a new region (via horiz or vert split), focuses the new windowless region, and locks the screen (C-a x), upon successful unlock, the windowless region retains focus and inherits the window of the original region.

To reproduce:

Notice both regions now display the same output and the "windowless" has focus.
