Screen uses a pseudo-terminal pair to communicate with the shells it

handle mouse events on anything other than Linux virtual console. So
requests from MC for mouse events on /dev/pts/1 should fail ... but
there is a patch in the RedHat version of gpm that removes a check which
is supposed to catch that condition. I guess you are using Fedora, right ?

Gentoo, actually.

I've just checked the Gentoo patches to gpm. The check I speak of
is not disabled on Gentoo, but the message it is supposed to output
is suppressed. This is done by the 09_all_logfillup.patch. In any case
what you want to do won't work.
