[arch-dev-public] WARNING: changes to screen in testing

When you run with systemd's default tmpfiles configuration and you use
screen, your screen sockets are deleted after 10 days. This is bad and
caused me some trouble.

I changed screen in testing to use /run/screens instead, which won't be
cleared by tmpfiles - and it is the correct place for this stuff anyway.

However, when upgrading the screen package, your existing screens will
become unaccessible. How should we handle this?
