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

Is there any way to get the actually fixed version backported?
