Description:
Create a .screenrc file with the following content:

termcapinfo xterm* cl=\Ec

Launch screen inside a GUI terminal with scrollbar.

What happened:
Some programs have arrow key issues: less, vim...

What is expected:
The programs to recognize key arrows even with custom clear.

Version (tested on both):
Screen version 4.03.01 (GNU) 28-Jun-15
Screen version 4.06.02 (GNU) 23-Oct-17
