I regularly use the screen that shipped with MacOSX 10.4.6 and now .7:

[10:17:19] [~] grumpy $ screen -v
Screen version 4.00.02 (FAU) 5-Dec-03

[10:17:21] [~] grumpy $ uname -a
Darwin 8.7.0 Darwin Kernel Version 8.7.0: Fri May 26 15:20:53 PDT 
2006; root:xnu-792.6.76.obj~1/RELEASE_PPC Power Macintosh powerpc

I did use the Terminal.App for a while, but it would annoy me in small
ways to the point that I just switched over to using X11 an xterms.  I
don't remember the behaviour you are describing, but I can't really
remember what exactly I didn't like about the Terminal.App.
