That's truly amazing logic.

1) Vim is probably the most popular editor in cygwin.

2) It's a SEGV from cygwin.  It would be folly to ignore those.

3) As you note, screen doesn't even ship with cygwin.

"Help me with it".  Yeah.  That's one way to look at it.

Why don't you help *us* with it by debugging the problem?  I don't
really care about screen but if it's important to you then some
hours with gdb might be in order.  That's what I do with problems
that I care about.
