Probably I was misinterpreting the term 'screen' as a terminal (ssh)
session. Probably you're lucky to have one but I don't have it on
several machines (yes, it's optional but even a good choice if you
can use one).

I guess (and even after re-reading the original post) the original
poster doesn't have a com terminal session. Doing things like that
in a ssh session is a bad idea. Just wanted to note this without
going into a fundamental discussion. ;)
