trying to use GNU screen. backspace makes screen flash.
I really like using screen, but there's one thing that has really been bugging me. when i backspace too much, like when there's nothing on a line and i hit backspace, the screen flashes white(or whatever the text color is). I often just hold backspace until i have a clear line if i make a mistake, and the screen flashing just kinda hurts my eyes and i'd like to stop this behavior.
Anybody know what i'm talking about? or how to fix it? it happens when i'm using screen in console(like runlevel 2,3, etc.) and when running screen in an x terminal emulator.
