Follow-up Comment #2, bug #25214 (project screen):

I noticed that screen needs write access as the new user to the tty of the
user doing sudo. For example:

$ chmod 666 $(tty)
$ sudo su - <other-user> -c screen

This works, but screen does not react to size changes of the xterm in which I
am doing all this :-(

Any ideas on how to get screen pick up changed xterm sizes?

PS: I know that sudo su is a kludge, not my choice :-(
