thanks and that sounds exactly what my issue was.
I'll try start screen from outside of X and see if it is ok.

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 X...how can i archive that?
