Please clarify: what are the semantics when using screen -x, say with
one TERM=xterm and one TERM=linux ?

Also, does this work correctly with xterm -e screen ssh fooserv screen
emacs -nw -- that is, when the "inner" screen sees TERM=screen rather
than TERM=xterm?  It seems to me that TERM=screen should be included
in the list of term types that screen expects to support mouse inputs.

Oops, I guess that answers my second question :-)
