I don't know what you're talking about.  Can you provide step-by-step
instructions to reproduce this bug?

Mouse works for me within screen:

    xterm -e screen emacs -nw -Q -f xterm-mouse-mode

Note that this requires Emacs to be compiled with X enabled (i.e. it
doesn't work in emacs22-nox).  The scroll wheel also works, but
requires bindings.  From my .emacs:

    (when (and (fboundp 'xterm-mouse-mode)
               (not window-system)
               (featurep 'mouse))
      (xterm-mouse-mode +1)
      (when (fboundp 'mwheel-scroll)
        (global-set-key (kbd "<mouse-4>") 'mwheel-scroll)
        (global-set-key (kbd "<mouse-5>") 'mwheel-scroll)))

PS: note that (not window-system) has the wrong semantics in CVS Emacs
with mtty, e.g. if your first Emacs window is a native X window but
then you start an mtty emacsclient inside screen.
