I am trying to disable the delay after a visual bell on my screen sessions. I normally run 1 screen and connect to it via the -x command line argument from multiple xterm windows.
When I do something to create a visual bell, like backspacing too far in gdb, I get the "Bell in window %" messages in all my other windows. I don't mind that so much but I have to wait for a second or so before I can type into the window again. I have the same issue even if I disable the visual bell using :vbell off or ^G. I've tried setting the vbellwait value to 0 and that does not seem to have an effect. Does this seem like a setting issue within screen? I don't generally care about the bells.
