Is there any reason that I shouldn't put this command into the default
/etc/screenrc file? Are there terminal types for which it would cause problems?
I just tried this with a DOS terminal, which doesn't support 256 colors AFAIK.
It didn't make any difference that I could tell.
Maybe I'll put out another test release with that change, and see if anyone
