    I've run into this issue with screen before - in fact, I have, for
many many years been under the impression that screen always performed
like that.  Maybe not.  xterm on AIX circa many years ago when I started
using screen did the same thing, and I've progressed through several
*nixes and never noticed any difference.

    At any rate, a quick ^A-ESC puts you into copy/scrollback mode, and
you can move up through your screen buffer, which you can set to any value
you want (man screen for more info).

    I use screen as my 'shell' - in Configure Konsole... under
Settings, create a Session with "screen -dRS evan1" (where the last param
is the name of the screen session.  Then fire it up in Konsole... you can
then log in and out of KDE and be right where you were, or ssh into your
box and detach the session remotely and pick up where you left off.  You
can also set it as part of your .login on a remote box, and use 'repeat
ssh -X evan at nell' in the Execute field of a Konsole Session, and have
Konsole always log you right into your place on your server.
