	I always just run "screen -r -d" as a matter of habit.  I
actually ssh into zork twice on identically-sized xterms and run
"screen -r -d" in one (for mail) and "screen -x" in the other (for
IRC).  I ^An and ^Ap around to get to shells in whichever window
doesn't have something of immediate concern to me at the moment.

	One of zork's users wrote the following keen script to turn
nwall (apt-cache show nwall) into a split-screen chat app:

#!/usr/bin/screen -mc
# Nate's IRC (not actually an IRC client)
# nirc is a screen config file that slaps an IRC-like interface on nwall
escape ^yy
screen bash -c 'nwall -y; bash'
resize 3
screen bash -c 'mesg n; nwall -s'

	It works a charm, but it does make for more work at the
command line sometimes if you run it and another screen session at the
same time (I often run it inside one of the screen windows, hence the
"escape ^yy").

A: No.
