Description Derek Schrock 2016-06-25 07:52:00 UTC
With screen 4.4 any session that was created with <4.4 can't be reattached with 4.4.  https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/screen-users/2016-06/msg00014.html

Should a warning be printed via pkg-message or during pre-install with and option to cnt-c after X seconds to allow the user to stop the install to handle any 4.3 session cleanup before installing 4.4?

URL: https://svnweb.freebsd.org/changeset/ports/417511

  Add a pkg-message note about a fix to the screen message structure
  field responsible for $TERM handling. It is impossible to reattach
  to older versions.
