I had the same problem, but it seems that the minor device number of the
/dev/console changes after the use of "screen". It will change from 0 to
127. X just seems to be the program that gets annoyed with it. :-) In
case it happens, just do a "cd /dev; MAKEDEV console" as root and it fixes
it right up, usually. Good luck.
