gnu screen quietly crashing
mjd@mjd:~$ which screen
mjd@mjd:~$ screen -v
Screen version 4.06.01 (GNU) 10-Jul-17
mjd@mjd:~$ uname -a
Linux mjd 4.13.0-21-generic #24-Ubuntu SMP Mon Dec 18 17:29:16 UTC 2017 x8664 x8664 x86_64 GNU/Linux
My gnu screen is quietly crashing about once per day.
No message from the program or from the system. No detaching message. No system limit message. Nothing. It leaves the child sessions available for reattachment.
How do I debug this? Have others seen this? It doesn’t happen to me on my other (non DO hosts).
