I really only use screen for detaching. I would prefer to use dtach, but
when I reconnect, for example, to a shell that is running a compilation,
I can't see what the previous output was. I've tried all three redraw
methods, but whenever I reattach to a running shell, the cursor always
starts at the top and doesn't show the previous output. This doesn't
work for me when I'm compiling because I don't get the output to tell me
what happened! Anyone know how to make dtach redraw work the same way it
does when I reattach using screen?

Thanks -RPM
