Thanks. Yes, this is perfect. I still want screen to start when I login as
a normal user, but exec does what I want. That way, I can still su to root
and exit my root shell without logging out. What used to be four presses of
^D now only takes one or two. Perfect! It even closes my Cygwin window
which is what I want. I had no idea it was that simple. Now I exec ssh
The -d and -R switches to screen are also what I wanted. That way a new
screen launches when I connect if I didn't detach from my previous session
but re-attaches if there is already a detached session. Perfect! I knewe
there was a way to do what I wanted, but I wasn't sure how.
