Hi all,

I'm new with screen utils. I love it!
A few days I'm using it over Linux machine without problems.
Now I trying install over a Sun Solaris 10 (SPARC) and got a little problem.

Here is the information about the version:

# screen --version

Screen version 4.00.02 (FAU) 5-Dec-03

# cat /etc/release

Well , my problem is with "shell" parameter on the ".screenrc".
I put the shell to work with login shell "-" .
shell -

In this sample, I using the user "cmartins":
> grep cmartins /etc/passwd

On my $HOME/.profile I add a command and this works fine when I login on the system. But when screen are started , a weird syntax error occur.
This is my profile:
> cat .profile
    # Copyright (c) 2001 by Sun Microsystems, Inc.
    # All rights reserved.
    # ident "@(#)local.profile      1.10    01/06/23 SMI"
    stty istrip
    export PATH

I just add the "vSO" variable.
When screen are started this message appear:
    :screen (-): -
    -: syntax error: `vSO=$' unexpected

If I remove the ".screenrc" file and start screen with "-s -" parameter, the same error occur.

BTW: I have the same commands of the profile and .screenrc running on a linux
machine without problems.
