Hi Anders,

this crash seems to happen regularily at yours, but so far only at yours. At least this bug report doesn't seem to contain the information from the screen-dbg package and the two duplicates don't contain any stacktrace at all. Any chance to get a stacktrace with the debug package installed.

It would be also nice to know what you did, when it happened so I can maybe reproduce it.

Does any of these sound familiar?

The referred fix is in 4.3.1 that version (or later) is in >=17.04.
Somebody tagged it artful, but did someone really try this with newer releases?

Um, there’s no “referred fix”. I gave up on reporting duplicates of this a while ago, but the last one I reported (bug 1708927) was with screen 4.6.1-1 in artful. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen this in bionic, so I’ll be sure to send another report next time.

I meant the link, that is listed as 4.3.1 - I didn't go into detail there.
Thanks for the feedback that this still affects newer versions.

The link is to an open bug report, there is no fix there.

Now I needed to read it in more detail.
I beg your pardon, reading it again obviously they list "release" and "fixed release" separately - and I misread the former for the latter.
I'm with you now, sorry for the (confused) noise
