I've been using screen to control simulation runs that run anywhere up
to several hours.  I use the -S option to give each session a
meaningful name.  One thing I've missed is a way to change that name.
I've found that each session has a pipe in /var/run/screen/S-jrv, but
renaming that pipe breaks the session.  Is there a way?
