after looking into this a bit, I found that this version uses
/var/run/screens which looks like this:
drwxr-xr-x   4 root     root         1024 Jan 14 20:32 screens

I tried changing the permissions to drwxrwxrwx, but running screen after
that change resulted in this error:
Directory '/var/run/screens' must have mode 755.

I also emailed this information to the package maintainer, but he hasn't
answered yet..	I might just end up downgrading to the bo version which
worked perfectly..
