Setting my alias for starting screen to 'screen -Tvt220' is faster and
I only have to do it once. I don't have the problems the OP is having,
colors come through fine for me, I've not had any problems doing things
this way for nearly 15 years of screen usage while accessing probably
thousands of systems.
Yes, I'm lazy, all good sysadmins should be, that's partly why we use
screen in the first place. =)
