When running a vim instance in gnu screen hitting shift enter in insert mode adds an 'M' and then a newline, rather than just a newline.
Does anybody know what the problem might be, or where to look?
Relevant system info:
Screen version 4.00.03 (FAU) 23-Oct-06
VIM - Vi IMproved 7.1 (2007 May 12, compiled Jan 31 2008 12:20:21) Included patches: 1-138
Konsole 1.6.6 (Using KDE 3.5.10)
Thanks to the comments. When checking the value of
$TERM I noticed that it was
xterm (as expected), but within screen
$TERM was set to
TERM=xterm after launching screen resolves this issue.
Adding the following to
~/.screenrc solved the problem without having to do anything manually:

What is the difference between <C-C> and <C-[> in vim?
- Where do you run screen and see this issue? Some terminal app (KTerminal, Gnome terminal, virtual console etc) or remote session (eg putty, ssh from another computer)
- do a “echo $TERM” and tell us its output
- do a “cat -v”, press Shift-Enter, then Enter, then Ctrl-D and then tell us what is output.

Then configure screen with "term screen-256color".
Or 'konsole' and 'screen', respectively, if that's your preference.
Konsole and screen are not xterm and doesn't support everything xterm does, so using incorrect $TERM can lead to bad things..
