Hi! From a quick glance, this looks like a good change. Comments inline:

'automatically reconnect a dead screen window'  -> 'automatically
launch the process that was running in the dead window', or
'automatically resurrect the dead screen window'.

'zombie_timeout' applies to the currently selected window, and all
newly created windows? Can you please explicitly state that in the
man/info pages.
