I recently updated the screen package in Cygwin to version 4.5.0-1. This version
turns out to have at least one security problem [1], and maybe other serious
bugs too. So I've asked for it to be removed from the Cygwin archives.

If you've installed screen 4.5.0-1, you should downgrade to the previous
release, 4.4.0-1. A new release that fixes the problems in 4.5.0 is expected out
next month.
