Screen Mouse Scrolling Sends Arrows

I’m finding all sorts of things we researched and sorted on the old server without documenting 🙁 Today’s discovery is that screen uses alternate screens where the mouse wheel sends arrow keys. Which means you end up going through your history instead of scrolling up a few lines. Fix? Either create a .screenrc in the user’s account or globally change /etc/screenrc (which is what we do):


[root@server-replacement ~]# diff /etc/screenrc /root/oldserver-screenrc
