Problem description

By default, screen did not use Unix98 ptys (/dev/pts/*), which resulted in its controlling terminal being world-writable. This is a security bug, which this package cures. Credits go to Red Hat. Moreover, /etc/profile.d/screen.sh has been rewritten so that it's now totally sh-compatible, ie it will also work with other sh-compatible shells (zsh, ash to name two of them).
