Annoying ‘screen’ Backspace Problem

Already a long time that this issue is bugging me. The great ‘screen’ unix command has a problem, at least on ubuntu: the backspace key produces the same effect than delete (first char on the right of the cursor gets deleted). Very annoying. Hopefully the solution is easy. Edit your file ‘~/.bashrc’ and add the following line:

alias screen='TERM=screen screen'
