First time posting! Many thanks for providing this forum and resource.

When using `screen` from an ssh terminal window, it seems to execute, but gives a message that `/var/run/utmp` is missing. When I exit `screen`, I am unable to regain control of the terminal window - it just blanks out, forcing me to close and open a new one. This also happens when doing `control+a d` key combos. `ps aux | grep -i screen` shows that the instance is running. Finally, when doing `screen -rD` I'm brought back to the instance and the program I left there appears to be working fine.

I'm wondering whether i'm using `screen` from the binpack incorrectly, or whether there's something else going on?

Prior to using screen, try export TERM=xterm256-color?
Also you can easily touch /var/run/utmp - that will fix that error. It's just that iOS doesn't normally use it.

And you're more than welcome!
