Follow-up Comment #18, bug #11610 (project screen):

This happens to be all the time.

I'm in screen, I accidentally hit Ctrl-S, and it freezes.  I immediately press
Ctrl-Q and nothing happens.  Keep pressing Ctrl-Q over and over--screen is
frozen.  Can't detach it. 

My solution has been:
(1) leave the original ssh and screen open
(2) from another ssh, submit many detach requests:
    "screen -d 10359 &"
(2) wait 5-10 min while those jobs are trying to detach it
(3) try Ctrl-Q again in the original screen
(4) MAGICALLY it wakes up and detaches
(5) reattach

I don't know why this works, but it usually does!
