Re: all apps in my screen lost across X reboot

If you start screen from an X session,  then screen is a child of X. So when X dies, so does screen. To do what you want, you would have to start screen outside of X. 

There are many ways to do this. For example, you could start a screen session at boot time from rc.local. Or you could just switch to a different tty (e.g. ctrl-alt-F2) and start a new screen session there. Then go back to X (ctrl-alt-F7) and reattach to that screen session.

I use screen for years and I'm happy with it.
one thing annoyed me a lot is everytime when i need to reload X (it's not stable), and when I come back and find everything in my screen (vim, news, mutt, telnet, ssh,...everything) also went away, the session/windows are there though. searching the internet I haven't got much useful info.
people are saying they use screen to get persistent sessions across can i archive that?
