screen is supposed to set its internal terminal type to 'screen'.
It is supposed to translate escape-sequences from this internal
representation to the terminal type of the real terminal it is running in
('linux' in our case'). 

I don't know what 'TERM=screen.linux' is. Probably a Gentoo 
hack then.  (Any Gentoo-maintainers out there?)
