Ping!  Any news on this?

Belatedly, yes: the problem spontaneously went away(!), after I accidentally full-screened my terminal emulator then restored it to normal size. While I am by no means certain of why that should have
such an effect, what digging I have been able to do suggests the
explanation might involve (1) a SIGWINCH that operation generated which (2) caused that particular screen-sessions's bash to set $COLUMNS and $LINES, which were previously nonextant.

I haven't been able to replicate the crash since. I can only suggest closing this bug report for now, and I'll reopen it if I manage to
figure out how to trigger the crash again.
