Well, replying to myself here, since no one else has.
I've read through most of the archives for this list (and the old list),
and have found only one reference to this problem, but it was aparntly
never solved.

The ideas that were given were to check if you had a 'password' (crypted
password) set in your .screenrc, which i do not. I set one to see what
would happen - and as the man page says, it is a password that is now
required to reattach to screen, however i still cannot unlock it when
locked (C-a C-x, default binding).

I enter my password, and is not accepted.

Does anyone have any ideas?

This just started all-of-the-sudden. It used to work fine.
Oh, and the other person mentioned it still working with the root account
- i checked, and this IS the case for me too. It works fine for root, just
not for me, or any other users.
