I have found that the command that aliases ls to "ls --color=tty" is
often in either /etc/profile or ~/.bash_profile. Thus, since shells
started in screen don't read these files, you just don't get the alias.
Therefore, it's not an error in screen, but rather a login script flaw.

Try running "ls --color" and see if that gets you color.
