  Sorry; I misread your original post, and thought that multisessions
required a later model DEC terminal.
  The unix screen doesn't assume any TERM definition. I've run it from
serial terminals, ssh sessions, and text-mode logins with a variety of
term definitions. The Linux, *BSD and AIX versions all set the virtual
terminal to its own termcap. It makes AIX almost convenient....
