Not that often i start screen with -d -m, but i did today and noticed that some settings wasn't used from my .screenrc, namely "windowlist string" and "windowlist title". Looking through the source i notice that windowlist has the NEED_DISPLAY flag in comms (in comm.c). Guess thats not 100% correct as the sting and title subcommands doesn't need a screen to work, but the other does. Not sure how to fix it the right way, but removing NEED_DISPLAY from the flags does at least set those strings when using -d -m.

Indeed. It has long been fixed in the code (commit b90451c8a, dated May 2006). You can get the latest code (with a whole lot of other fixes and features) here:

Ah, good, but shouldn't there be a release soon as its over 3 years since last?

And while we talk about bleeding edge screen... is there a way to use the session-name in the config file to load session-spesific settings? Right now i use export SESSION=foo; screen -S $SESSION and use $SESSION in the config, but it's a bit hacky.
