$ screen -v
Screen version 4.01.00devel (FAUd87a0d8) 2-May-06

that's latest from git repo, and latest ncurses(w) + xterm.

At the moment I have to set explicitly

term "screen-256color"

to get 256 colors working. Otherwise $TERM stays simply "screen",
even when called from an xterm-256color environment.

Sometimes, albeit rarely I switch to Apple's
(nsterm-16color), and I'd like to get screen-16color there
without having to set it explicitly.

Is this possible? What am I doing wrong?
