When in this state, can you run 'screen -ls' from another terminal,
and see if it lists an existing session (as
'Dead'/'Detached'/'Attached')? I am thinking maybe xterm starts screen
before it has the specified geometry, and doesn't send screen a
size-changed signal, or it does send the signal but screen ignores it.
Could you try the version from git and see if you continue to see this
