Any clue what might be happening?
"GNU Screen - Bugs: bug #11610, XON (Ctrl-S) halts screen 4.0.2"
btw, you do not mention trying...
...and perhaps that is because ^q is not mapped to xon in your
installation. but if it is, you might want to give that a try. (ftr,
i am using version 4.01.00devel (GNU) 2-May-06 in debian 7.1.)
i make the suggestion because on my installation "ctrl-a ctrl-q"
behaves differently than "ctrl-a q". namely, the former happens to
work and the latter does not appear to work (both in a vt and in
xterm). this is despite the fact that my screen installation's help
command informs me that both ^Q and q are mapped to xon.
i have been assuming the discrepancy is most likely due to some
non-screen part of my environment. because i like screen's help
command, and i like to think it would not tell me dirty, dirty lies.
