It's not possible.  bash would have no way of knowing that Ctrl-b was
typed during the time that another process was in the foreground.

You could do "screen bash" even earlier (e.g., from your startup

leave it in the background, you can start a new shell, even if you
didn't do anything special when starting that job.
