Please describe exactly what you mean by "it no longer works". Does it
do nothing at all? Does it spew funny characters? Do 7 and 1 go to the
beginning and end of a line, respectively, and the point (.) delete
characters in front of the cursor?

What do you mean by, "If I create a new screen"? Do you mean, if you
quit the first and create a new one, or do you mean starting a nested
one, but not in (the second) ssh, via something like "screen -m"?

What terminal are you using? What does the "infocmp" command give
outside of screen (but inside the first ssh: suspend it with C-a z or
something if that can get you to a shell within the ssh); what does
"infocmp" give inside of screen, and what does "infocmp" give inside of
screen on the remote host?
