Actually, no I'm using gnome-terminal on Ubuntu 10.10.  I wonder if
it's due to the fact that I'm ssh-ing to other machines within each
screen window?  Sometimes I will do this if I have a dozen servers to
work on at the same time, I have a little script that spawns a new ssh
session to each box in separate windows.  Here's a little tidbit that
I just learned; you can send the same command to all windows at the
same time:

[CTRL-A] :at \# stuff "pwd; hostname; uptime^M"

That will send the pwd, hostname, and uptime commands to all windows.  YMMV.
