screen crashes in F17 alpha/beta

I use screen all the time in conjunction with BitchX on Fedora 17 without any issues.
However I did notice when also trying the /detach function I was getting some weird errors:
Error creating IPC socket.
[dan at Fedora17 ~]$ /pts/0. To re-attach type scr-bx
error creating socket (-2: Address family not supported by protocol)
Screen itself works fine with BitchX but this is a detach function that is built in to the program that has worked for years. I will try disabling SELinux and see if that makes a difference.
Either way, could you provide some insight to this, Michal?

If something "flashes" then most likely you can save that for later by running
If not enough then redirect both stderr and stdout to some file and examine results.

Sounds like a permissions problem somewhere (pty access?). What about selinux? Did you try to check what audit has to say?
