Is there any way to disable the behavior of gnu-screen, of issuing a clear at startup?
I'm using screen merely as a backstop, so that if disconnected, the session isn't HUP'ed. And I've got my shell (bash) config'd to "exec screen -A" on login, so that I get right into screen automatically.
However, screen immediately issues a clear and then I've got to scroll back up to see whatever login messages there might have been.
Similarly, at exit, I'd like to skip the clear there too, so I can see the results of my .bash_logout.
(If it's any help, my term is usually xterm-color (via Mac OS X's Terminal.app) though I do sometimes come in via ssh from some other node. And I'm generally connecting to an Ubuntu box/instance.)
