You can also try to put this in your .screenrc:

etenv TERM screen shell -$SHELL
shell -bash
activity "Activity in %t(%n)"

attrcolor b ".I"    # allow bold colors - necessary for some reason
termcapinfo xterm 'Co#256:AB=\E[48;5;%dm:AF=\E[38;5;%dm'   # tell screen how to 
set colors. AB = background, AF=foreground
defbce on    # use current bg color for erased chars
terminfo xterm* ti=:te=
term screen

Does your script send some of the screen's paste commands?

You can use "layout" and "resize" for this. Some good tips here:

Ref. to the termcap setting above.

A new GNU screen forum at reddit would be nice. :)
