I didn't think it necessarily had anything to do with mintty as an
application, but the TERMCAP settings it's using. Your comment did remind me
that screen still reads the /etc/screenrc file even if you have a user
specified configuration, so I diffed the /etc/screenrc from my Debian desktop
and the Cygwin /etc/screenrc and found they were different. After replacing
Cygwin's screenrc with the one from Debian, it behaved as expected.

Thanks for the help,
