I have problems running screen on my pc. When I start it, it complains
about the mode of the temporary directory.
"Directory /tmp/uscreens/S-Frank must have mode 700."

With 1.7.35-0.3 I could not chmod the directory manually. I just
upgraded to 1.7.35-0.4 and now I can manually chmod the directory to
700 and start screen again.

But IFAIK previously (not sure when) screen was able to chmod the
directory itself, but now not anymore.
