RE[3]: fuser and screen collab

NOTE: "lsof +D [mount point]" does the same thing, piping to grep is habit

Just to be a pedant, it doesn't do the same thing, it does something markedly different, however it does often produce the same result.

Actually the results can be very different, take for example the case of "lsof +D /bin/" which will find any open files under /bin and "lsof |grep /bin/" which will find any files with /bin/ in their path e.g. files in /usr/bin as well as files in in /bin.
