I use this in my .screenrc:

termcapinfo xterm* ti@:te@

I think this basically tells screen not to use the terminal's "alternate
screen".  You can still have screen emulate the "alternate screen"
though.  I also put this in my .screenrc:

altscreen on

Note none of this will help with the problem you described when
switching between the windows within screen.
