If I use current git commit, Ctrl-a backspace for going to previous screen does not work, but in other situations backspace works normally.
Workaround for this problem is adding "bind -k kb prev" in screenrc.

SHA of git commit: 450e8f38d479dfb8f5b3151d1c0bdcc2e9c6c6cc
Configured with: ./configure --enable-pam --enable-colors256 --enable-rxvt_osc --enable-use-locale --enable-telnet --with-pty-mode=0620 --with-pty-group=$(getent group tty | cut -d : -f 3) --with-socket-dir="/tmp"
tried in gnome-terminal 3.0.1
