1.153.1. RHBA-2011:0401: screen bug fix update

An updated screen package that fixes two bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The screen utility allows multiple logins on a single terminal. This is especially useful for users who connect to a remote machine or are connected using a terminal that does not provide this functionality, but want to use more than one login.
This update fixes the following bugs:
* The default configuration file contains several tweaks for the xterm terminal emulator, such as displaying the list of windows in the title bar. However, due to the strict use of "xterm" in patterns to match the terminal name, these options were not applied to other xterm variants like xterm-256color or xterm-88color. This update corrects the relevant patterns to match all xterm names, resolving this issue. (BZ#474064)
* Previously, the default configuration disabled the use of the "h" key. Consequent to this, pressing the "Ctrl+a h" key combination to write a printed version of the current window to a file did not work. With this update, the "bind h" option has been removed from the default configuration file, and the above key combination now works as expected. (BZ#521824)
All users of screen are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which resolves these issues.
