When switching screens, anything that has scrolled off the top of a window is
accessible only through screen commands.  I have a habit of trying to use my
local scrollbar, only to be disappointed to see whatever had scrolled off the
top before I ran "screen -r".

It would be really nice to have the option to have screen dump a bunch of
scrolled-off lines when switching screens so that the local terminal toolbar
has mostly the expected effect.
