This is not a symptom I've run across before; I mostly use Debian and
Ubuntu systems, with xterm or rxvt-unicode.

I assume you're running Emacs within scren -- that is, it does not open
a separate Emacs window?  If in screen you type ^A:altscreen, does it
say "Will not do alternate screen switching" ?  If so, that means
altscreen *was* on.
