Issue #2199 has been updated by Alex Hornung.

No. what exactly segfaults? where? Does screen itself segfault or is it in utmpx? If screen itself segfaults, it's a screen bug. If the segfault is in the utmpx code, there are better ways of fixing it. Putting some magical file creation in probably not the right solution.

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.
