On a old version of screen, installed for example on Centos 5.5 ....

$ screen --versionScreen version 4.00.03 (FAU) 23-Oct-06$ rpm -q

screen do not clean terminal copy/paste buffer when I run a new screen
or I reuse a previous screen ... and this is good!

But the subsequent versions to last current version ...

$ screen --versionScreen version 4.06.02 (GNU) 23-Oct-17$ rpm -q

screen clean the terminal copy/paste buffer when I run new screen
session o I reuse a previous suspend screen session

When I'm inside a screen session and I select with mouse some text,
then copy it with right click into buffer, when I exit from screen and
return into terminal session, the copy/paste buffer is not clean and I
can paste the previous copy text via right click or press the middle
mouse button.

But if I copy some text previous to run a screen, then run a new screen
or reuse a suspend screen, when I'm inside the screen the copy buffer
is empty and I do no t can paste it in any way.

Someone know if it's possible to disable this "clean copy buffer
feature" of the screen?

Many thanks
