That's what I did just now. Although I was a bit scared when I saw this:

Configuring dropbear
 System startup links for /etc/init.d/dropbear already exist.
Restarting Dropbear SSH server: Connection to closed by remote
Connection to closed.
imo at ivar-laptop:~$ ssh root at
root at's password:
root at om-gta02:~# screen -ls
No Sockets found in /tmp/screens/S-root.

... I don't know why, but somehow I did actually try 'screen -R' anyway,
even though I saw the list was empty. And it did actually work. :)

I wouldn't call this a solution though, just a work-around.
