How do a control where the -X command will go? If I wanted the windowlist to show in term1 for example.

For your question Robert, I have no idea how you can select ther terminal connected... can't see anything in the manpage, and can't say i found a way doing so while trying to find a solution.

Well, if you know which window in the screen is active in the terminal, you could use -p, but that just says to send the command to a spesific window within screen, not which terminal connected to the screen.

Perhaps the 'at' command may help here?

 at [identifier][#|*|%] command [args ... ]

       If the first parameter  is  of  the form `identifier%'  identifier
       is matched  against  displays. Displays are named after the ttys
       they attach. The prefix `/dev/' or `/dev/tty' may be omitted  from
       the identifier.

I'd be interrested to hear, if this arcane screen command still work properly.

That works fine here.  I tried the following

        screen -X at 'pts/0%' stuff foo

And 'foo' got stuffed in the right window (got pts/0 from C-a * for those who wonder). I'll try to remember 'at' for a later time when i need some multi-input ;)
