  Why yes, yes I am.  In fact, I use it almost exclusively and from
multiple machines at once.

  I was wondering if that might be causing the problem too, but often
what I do is ssh from hostA to a server and then run multiple screen windows
on it and then ssh from hostB to the same server, run screen -x and then
ssh from hostA to hostB for some reason.  Even while all my ssh
connections are functioning fine, it still locks up.  So I figured it
might be something else.

  GREAT!  I'll see if that works for me too.  Thanks.
