Just press ctrl+c and it displays "Getpass error".

I can't reproduce this on either Mac OS X (screen 4.00.03) or
Debian (screen 4.00.02) ...

So goes here. Debian Etch, Screen version 4.00.03 (FAU) 23-Oct-06.
But maybe it's because I have a password directive in my .screenrc
(You need to enter a password if you want to resume the session via

Unable to reproduce this on Gentoo.
