How can i tell if the screen i am using really understands 256 colors or not? i try 'tput 39' both within screen and outside, both actually send \e[38;5;39m (light blue) as it should, but it seens screen translates it to \e[34m (blue). tput colors report 256 both within and outside screen.

This for a remote screen inside a screen that actuall knows 256-colors, with TERM set to screen before starting screen. Running a testprogram it seems that this inner screen knows only of the first 8 colors. Changing TERM to xterm-256color and then starting screen i seems to know abount 16 colors instead. Both termacpentries specify 256 colors, and their diff seems to mostly include key definitions.

any ideas?
