I recently pulled b6dd7d868756eccc06aa4b9ef6c2098d41ceaa86 from git and
applied ben love's patch from to try out
the %E string escape. I'm using the hardstatus given in

Sometimes after I terminate a shell or program in screen, my screen session
will hang, and when I start a new shell I see a dead screen session, but no

I can't reproduce this behaviour, but one or all of the following factors
coincide with it:

 - running mutt, reading all my new mails
 - running screen via ssh on another host, possibly also starting mutt
 - running rtorrent or another application that has some involved text ui

Since I have no coredump, I thought running valgrind might be a good idea and
I see some invalid reads there, which might be related to this behaviour.
