Yeah thanks ! This is a clean tip for my problem.
I had tried to :set term=rxvt when vim was started without success so
I gave up this way before because I didn't tought it was required to
be set at startup. But in the vimrc it works ok.

Also, the thing I do that cured a lot of these mysterious problems fo
me is adding this to my .tcshrc file.

if ($term == "screen") then
   unsetenv TERMCAP

Screen tries to insert a big TERMCAP into your environment and it
doesn't play nice at all, particularly with aterm and tcsh.  As long
as I ditch that TERMCAP, everything works great.
