To backup my macOS machine, I use a screenrc which a layout and I set 

/usr/local/bin/screen -dm -c

 in a crontab.

After waking up, I open the detached screen for peace of mind. Every task
works great except for the predefined screen layout. The *-dm* option doesn't
keep the layout. Without a crontab, the bug still exists. (But in this case,
*detach* option in the rc file fixes if screen starts without *-dm* option).
Also this bug exists in bash of Rocky OS 9.

This is an example *backup.screenrc* to reproduce the error.

layout save default

zombie kr
verbose on

shell zsh
sessionname backup

screen -t macOS 1 
screen -t backup 2 
screen -t NOTE 3
screen -t VIT 4 
select NOTE
focus down
select macOS 
focus down
select backup
focus up
focus down
select VIT

The command I used.

 screen -dm -c backup.screenrc
