Hmmm, difficult to debug. The best would be to have a key logger to see
what keystrokes you type and then work out what screen is actually
trying to do.
I like screen but it does not work well with bash in emacs mode using
the standard key bindings.
Try Ctrl+a " to get a list of windows if it freezes up again.
It could also be the bash session itself that freezes up. I know it can
do that but I can't for the life of me remember what the shortcut was to
freeze or unfreeze it.
Not a very helpful reply, I share your pain. :-)
