That's just a "philosophical" question. For example if you detach screen
you are dropped to the original session and you really logout out of it.
And you are not really connected to the detached screen - it is detached
because noone is attached to it isn't it? :) So it is definitely not a
live login session because noone can interact with it unless he opens a
real session and runs a screen to reattach it.
