Any way to fix screen's mishandling of line wrap? (Maybe only Terminal.app)

I'm having an issue using screen and Terminal.app. If I get a bash prompt at the bottom of the screen and I keep typing until the line wraps to the next line, I see the next line, but I do not see the line above this one change.

Go into terminal settings and change the "Declare terminal as:" setting from "xterm-color" to just "xterm". That fixed it for me (but also has the consequence of turning off altscreen :( )
