screen 4.0.3 is now available in the Cygwin distribution.  You can find it
in the Cygwin installer in the "Utils" category.

All of screen's known bugs in Cygwin have been fixed.  It works fine inside
an rxvt, xterm, or PuTTYcyg terminal.  Inside a DOS console, screen works,
but in order to be able to reattach detached sessions, ** you must set "tty"
in the CYGWIN environment variable before you open the console **.  Please
see /usr/share/doc/screen/README.Cygwin for more information about this.

Please send bug or test reports to the cygwin list, cygwin at cygwin dot
