Thanks for reporting. Hm, I guess I never noticed this because I didn't
consider it a problem. The observed behavior works for me.
But if this is a bug, I have no idea what caused it. If it were changes in
termcap/terminfo entries in /etc/screenrc, someone would have to decode the
entries to figure it out - something I avoid. Otherwise someone will need
to do some bisection to find the commit that introduced it.
Any help would be appreciated on that. It would also be a good idea to
report it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
