some pointers you may want to address:

* [lintian ] you want to copy the 'name <address>' from debian/control to the 
tail of your last entry in debian/changelog (or contrariwise), since they 
differ in the spelling of the first name and lintian rigthfully assumes this is 
an NMU, and insists on seeing debian revision of -x.y, which you don't want 
since you are not preparing an NMU as I can see it.

* [me] the *orig* tarball name should not include the debian-revision (-7 in 
your case), but .orig:

you want: myscreen_0.7.8.orig.tar.gz
instead of: myscreen_0.7.8-7.tar.gz.

* [cppcheck] you want that initialized or the 'user time' won't be valid:
[./cpu/cpu.c:59]: (error) Uninitialized variable: _cpu_u

[lintian] is picky about 'informations', maybe you want:

[my own opinion] such comparisons are best to be avoided in package 

Otherwise, the package looks good, though I didn't have enough of time to test 
it, but I hope you will find a sponsor.
