Hi! Please note that changing the size of items in screen.h:struct msg affects the communication between the screen-server and the screen-clients. So if you have a screen-session running without this change, and run a screen-client with this change, then reattaching to the existing session/running commands in the existing session can break because of this change. To avoid any unexpected behaviour (e.g. crash etc.), for changes in struct msg, you also need to bump MSG_REVISION/MSG_VERSION. (this also applies to your patch for longer usernames).
