No, the strace doesn't hang. Directly when starting strace, the hanged
"screen -d -r" gets unlocked and works fine. This makes strace print what
usually is printed if you strace a normal screen-process. Lots of system

Of course, the pipe to /dev/null is not needed for this hack to work, it
just makes your terminal quiet.
