This is the point of the conversation where I butt my head in and
look stupid.  :-)

This may be a silly question, but how does "screen" decide that the
attaching terminal supports capturing mouse events?  It could be that
nano says it's interested, but screen thinks they're not available.

I'm no expert in the screen code base, but is this where?

  if (InStr(D_termname, "xterm") || InStr(D_termname, "rxvt"))
      D_CXT = 1;
What do you have TERM set to when you launch screen?  If you say
"TERM=xterm screen" to start screen, does that change things?



We sell spatulas, and that's all!
