When I close a full-region command, say vim or top, even with ‘altscreen on’, the prompt jumps to the bottom of the terminal (though altscreen is serving its purpose of clearing the screen above the prompt). Is there a way the prompt stays back at the place from which the command started? This problem is not there on an older version of screen (4.00.03).
