I should add, following this recipe here: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi- bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=681572 still reproduces the issue exactly.
Here is a copy of the repro: - enable the alternate screen: ^A :altscreen on - be sure to have at least two windows opened, then split with ^A S - open Vim - make the current region bigger with ^A :resize 83% (same with +number or while decreasing the other size) or remove it entirely with ^A X - close Vim and screen crashes with [screen caught signal 11. (core dumped)] The screen package I have is "screen (4.2.1-2~ubuntu14.04.1)", this is on ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS. I spent a little while trying to compile screen from source, but didn't get anywhere. https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=681572 seems to indicate that this is actually fixed in 4.2.1-*3*, which is /not/ in the backports. Is there any way to get the actually fixed version backported? ** Bug watch added: Debian Bug tracker #681572 http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=681572 -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Server Team, which is subscribed to screen in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1333630 Title: screen caught signal 11 core dumped To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/screen/+bug/1333630/+subscriptions -- Ubuntu-server-bugs mailing list Ubuntuemail@example.com Modify settings or unsubscribe at: https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/ubuntu-server-bugs
