Issue #2199 has been updated by Matthew Dillon .

On utmpx, it should suffice for the early boot rc scripts to create
    an empty utmpx, e.g. 'echo -n > /var/run/utmpx' at some point after
    the mounts have gone RW.

Bug #2199: screen segfaults if utmpx isn't present

Author: Peter Avalos 
Status: New
Priority: Normal
Target version: 

Right after boot, utmpx isn't created yet, and screen will segfault if it's not present.

I'm guessing utmpx needs to be created earlier so programs that rely on it won't segfault.
