When switching screens, anything that has scrolled off the top of a window is accessible only through screen commands. I have a habit of trying to use my local scrollbar, only to be disappointed to see whatever had scrolled off the top before I ran "screen -r".

It would be really nice to have the option to have screen dump a bunch of scrolled-off lines when switching screens so that the local terminal toolbar has mostly the expected effect.
