I have never seen such a thing, so this is a shot in the dark. All on
the CentOS cluster node where you start/reconnect screen (you SSH from
your Ubuntu box to the CentOS node to start screen there, right?).

- Outside of screen before you reconnect, what does
  "stty -a | grep rows" say? Do rows and columns match your actual
  terminal dimensions?

- Also outside of screen before your reconnect, what does
  "echo $LINES $COLUMNS" say? Do these dimensions match your actual
  terminal dimensions?

- Does it make any difference if you issue /usr/bin/resize before
  you reconnect with screen? Difference in terms of stty -a, the
  $LINES $COLUMNS value, and of course the virtual window size
  within screen.

- Out of curiousity? Did you ever try this with another terminal than
  gnome-terminal, e.g. xterm?
