      This is vim 7.1.266 so the patch should be included. I'll investigate
      on this.

      @Andy Kittner: Thanks for the tip. I'll keep it s a last resource, as
      I sometimes make use of vim - X clipboard features.

      @Manu Hack: I can indeed resume screen, no problem there, but all vim
      sessions inside are dead, that's my problem.

      For me, after re-attaching to a screen session, the vim would still be there but somehow many plugins would fail to work.
