I would like to ask for git commit, which solves following problem because I 
cannot upgrade screen to the newest version yet
(this issue was reported from older version of screen, new version do not 
contain this issue):


'screen' terminal configuration is not reverted to when quitting vim sessions 
which use colour schemes.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

* screen-4.1.0
* vim-enhanced-7.4

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Include the following alias configured within ~/.bashrc:

# alias | grep -is 'avim'
alias avim='vim +"color murphy"'

2. Initiate a screen session:


3. Open a text file using the 'avim' alias detailed above and notice that the 
'murphy' vim colour scheme is now in use. Then quit from the session without 
saving (I.E. ':q!'):

  avim /var/tmp/

When quitting from the session without saving, the original 'screen' terminal 
colour scheme is not reverted back to. 

4. Try the test again, this time write-quitting (I.E. ':wq!') from the 'avim' 
session and notice that the colour scheme is reverted back to correctly.

Actual results:

When quitting from the aliased vim session, the original screen colour 
configuration is not reverted back to. The vim colour scheme is still in place, 
which is not expected.

Expected results:

For the original 'screen' colour scheme to be reverted back to when ':q' from a 


In the newest version of screen is not this issue presented (so I expect that 
is solved).
Or just write me, which file is responsible for color scheme changing/reverting.

Thanks for your help.
