Fixed in screen-v4 branch - login can have up to 256 characters.
If users need longer they should edit os.h header in user defines part near bottom.

I hope this isn't too off-topic, but since the last two comments asked, the "workaround" for OpenShift is to use tmux instead of screen.

I get this error message when I try running screen after I sshd on my Redhat OpenShift machine. An OpenShift username is typically 33 characters long, being a random UUID like a7e8a7b8573e4eb26b52d36e4c875f12 .

Any hope of getting this fixed? Pretty please? It's such a silly limitation, and makes this great program completely and utterly unusable because of it.

Since the linked URL currently returns an internal server error, I'm uploading what archive.org has stored to save others the same effort.

might suggest using a hash for the login name combined with some n-char substring (which will generally be the whole name for most people anyway).

Screen is unusable for people with long names.

LoginName too long - sorry.

Please consider finding a better solution for those of us who are forced to bind our machines to AD.

Someone suggested this patch:
http://rephorm.com/files/patches/screen_long_username.diff

but it is not optimal, since it has potential for collisions.
