I have problem using screen on Mac OS X. When i type screen from a certain directory, it always switches to my home directory instead of keeping current.

[akhkharu@andrey-macbook ~/ror]$ screen -v
Screen version 4.00.03 (FAU) 23-Oct-06

My .screenrc file:

shell -$SHELL
termcapinfo xterm* ti@:te@

This does not happen if you remove your shell -$SHELL line from your .screenrc. It shouldn't be needed anyway, as screen will run your default shell.
