Revisit issue with Fn key mappings

I posted an email about this several weeks ago.
Although I received some feedback, I was never able to
work around the problem.

Now it is worse. Much worse. Originally, only F10 was
broken. Now, on a new Solaris 5.9 machine, F5 through
F12 are all broken.

Issue is that in using screen (4.00.02) on Solaris 9,
the function keys F5 through F12 are mapped in some
undesirable manner.

My main use of these keys is in vim 6.2 on Solaris 9.
I'm attaching to Solaris via putty on a PC (WinXP). In
vim, I can define actions for the function keys. If I
use vim WITHOUT screen, the actions work as desired.

But, if I start vim from within a screen session, only
keys F1, through F4 work. F5 through F12 are doing
something else, something unintended, and definitely
not related to the actions defined for them in my
.vimrc file.

How can I redefine these bindings to their original
settings? What file(s) do I update?

[as noted in my previous thread, I've already tried
without success redefining the bindings in various
files - eg, /usr/local/etc/screenrc]

FWIW, this is the contents of the file produced by
screen when I enter "C-A :dumptermcap" ...
