a problem with GNU Screen

Hi slackware folks,
I met trouble like this:

qw@slk:~$ screen -ls
There are screens on: (Detached)
1498.knp (Attached)
2 Sockets in /home/qw/.screen.

qw@slk:~$ screen -d 1498
[1498.knp detached.]

qw@slk:~$ screen -ls
There are screens on: (Detached)
1498.knp (Attached)
2 Sockets in /home/qw/.screen.


I cannot really detach it.
I am using Slackware.

qw@slk:~$ uname -a
Linux slk #3 SMP Wed May 12 23:13:09 CDT 2010 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM)2

Your method works for me, but I usually use
screen -S 1498.knp -d
There is also
screen -S 1498.knp -x detach
--- rod.
