termcap stuff.  The xterm entry in termcap or terminfo on your system
indicates that xterm supports a "visual bell".  So screen gets a beep and
then notifies xterm that it should do whatever for its visual vell.  xterm
responds by flashing the screen.  To get the behavior that you want, add
this to your .screenrc:

  termcapinfo xterm '@vb'
