One trick I've used for this problem is valve grinding compound. Put
a little on the screwdriver, and the grit helps keep it from slipping
out of the screw. There is actually a product made for this purpose,
but it is the same as valve grinding compound as far as I can
tell. It isn't a miracle, but just one more little trick that can
sometimes give you enough extra grab to get a screw out.
