I remember when you helped us to fix that, or I thought you had. I'm still using
the patch you provided.

No new patches have been added since then. Just minor upstream releases.

FWIW I use screen in Cygwin x86_64 every day, and I don't see any screen
corruption there, although I do see it in other OSes. Strange. Environment
variables? tty settings?

I confess to forgetting or just skipping announcements sometimes. It's hard for
me to tell that anyone cares about them, although I see that you do. I will try
to do better, though I guess if you don't see one from me you can assume nothing
important changed.

4.5.1-2 was just uploaded yesterday, as Marco said. I usually wait a day or so
(when I do remember) after I upload to send the announcement. Will send shortly.
