#13732 closed defect (fixed)

GNU screen 4.00.03 (FAU) 23-Oct-06 breaks on leopard after logoff/logon

Reported by: sr@… Owned by: digdog@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.6.0
Keywords: Cc:


Steps to reproduce (on mac osx leopard):

  1. log on using SSH
  2. start screen
  3. detach and logoff
  4. logon again, screen -dr

At this point screen is in a weird state with the following symptoms:

  • DNS requests do not work: cannot resolve domain.tld: Unknown host
  • 'whoami' returns the uid of the user instead of the username
  • sudo <somecommand> gives: sudo: uid 501 does not exist in the passwd file!

Leopard's built-in GNU screen (/usr/bin/screen) does not have such problem.

Mac OS X 10.5.6 Screen version 4.00.03 (FAU) 23-Oct-06

Just do a sudo port uninstall screen.
