For example, execute the following in screen or tmux, 
then try to stop the scrolling with ^S or ^C. 

   find / 2>&1

Both screen and tmux can have trouble stopping in a timely 
manner, but tmux can be so unresponsive as to be unusable. 

When screen is slow to respond, tricks such as switching to a 
different window, or resizing the window, or minimizing the 
GUI window can help. Those workarounds have not worked with 

What workarounds do you know of to get tmux to respond to input?
