Ah, good point..! 

I wondered about that after posting, but I was already in bed and by the
morrow I had forgotten about it.

I agree.. although I can't think of any applications I run on a regular
basis taking 'g' as a command, apart from ELinks, where it pops up a
dialog prompting you for a URL, it feels like an accident to happen.

Unless you go through all your favorite applications and remap 'g' to
displaying a message such as "no.. you are not in screen's copy mode",
naturally :-)
