Re: Regression with gnu screen: Scrollbar gone between 4.02 and 4.03

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
