It has been tested on OpenBSD 4.1 + screen 4.0.3 on x86.

How to reproduce:

Lock screen using ctrl+x
I guess you mean Ctrl+a+x?

Choose a Password
Confirm the Password

Screen asks for a Password to unlock the screen.
Just press ctrl+c and it displays "Getpass error".
2 seconds later the screen is unlocked and you`ve access.
I can't reproduce this on either Mac OS X (screen 4.00.03) or
Debian (screen 4.00.02) ...
