Hm.  Thanks for pointing this out.  It isn't anything I meant to do.
Looking now in the screen source, I see that there are two sample screenrc
files: etcscreenrc, and screenrc.  etcscreenrc is supposed to be a sample
/etc/screenrc, and screenrc is supposed to be a sample ~/.screenrc.  The
diff is at .

Neither of those files has exactly the termcapinfo line you cited, but
screenrc seems to have most of the capabilities in it, in xterm lines.

I don't mind installing screenrc instead of etcscreenrc as the global
/etc/screenrc, if it's got better functionality in it OOTB.  I'd appreciate
it if you'd test it first though, especially with mintty, and let me know
what you find.  I'll do the same, but I override most of that stuff in my
~/.screenrc, so it may not make much difference for me.
