But it is used by default on the systems I tried ( Fedora 2 IIRC ) ???

I thought it was a new feature, that certain non-VT100 features
of the phys. terminal are made available inside screen, and
the TERMCAP inside screen was adapted to describe the extra
functionality ( and the new terminal names were introduced
for terminfo, to achieve the same thing for terminfo programs ).

I will install debian version <whatever sarge will be labeled> soon
and check then ...
