  Well, it seems that I'm still having this problem.  Even after turning
on nonblock and restarting all my screen sessions.  After starting it up
again, I realized that I'm doing something that might be the cause.  I'm
using Ctrl-L to log myself out of each screen window.  I do this because
it's a busy server that I'm using it on and don't want to clutter the
'w' output, etc.   Does anyone think that this might cause the "locking
screen" problem that I'm having and if so, why?
