screen-3.9.4-3 with set 'password' option in .screenrc hang up on the
start. Ie.
echo password >> .screenrc
<blank screen monitor and all hang up>

Don't do that, then. ;)

You're supposed to use 'password <crypted password string>',
or 'password none'.

Still, it is a bug.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-12-01 19:41:59 UTC
... especially because its child process is segfaulting. Wheee.
Looking into it.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 1999-12-17 22:45:59 UTC
Fixed in screen-3.9.5, in Raw Hide.
