Hi again folks.

Thanks for the info. I primarily use RHEL and CentOS based systems, so poking around teh /etc/screenrc shows that they added the hardstatus stuff specifically.
I am able to get what i want by putting

 termcapinfo xterm hs@

in my .screenrc and it works like a charm. Thanks very much!

When I've had the misfortune to use CentOS-based hosts, I noticed they
fucked with the xterm window title by default.  This probably means that
either RHEL or the guy who built our SOE put stupid nonstandard things
in /etc/screenrc (or /etc/X11/Xresources/xterm).
