I want to use local scrollback on my terminal, whilst using gnu screen. That's because my network connection is incredibly slow, so using screen's scrollback is very slow. Local scrollback is much better.
This works, using "termcapinfo xterm* ti@:te@" in my .screenrc.
However, the mouse is mapped to screen's 'up'/'down' cursor keys, rather than being mapped to my local terminal scroll. Why? When screen is not running in the remote ssh session, using the mouse to scroll works just fine. But it seems like somehow gnu screen is telling my local terminal to just send it the mouse wheel commands, and ignore them itself?
