Screen help

Oh, sure.

From cygwin: exec ssh ...
From ssh: exec su
From su: exec screen

Then from screen, if you hit ^D it'll exit everything. Exec replaces the current running shell with the thing you're exec-ing.

That doesn't work with ssh which is usually how I connect.  I use ssh over the LAN.  I just want one press of ^d to log me out instead of two.  As it is now, if I su to root,I have to press ^d four times.  The first exits my root shell, the second exits Screen, the third logs me out and the fourth closes my Cygwin bash shell.  There must be a quicker and easier way.
