It seems the TERMCAP environment variable set by screen
exceeds 1023 bytes long.
(Bug of screen?)

I think this is also the cause of pkg/7008.

Does this really fix?

Screen sets its own termcap entry in TERMCAP variable,
and I think reverting the /usr/share/misc/termcap{,db} doesn't help.

I think the following will be a work-around of the problems

	% unsetenv TERMCAP	# if you are using csh
	% eval `tset -I -s`
in a window of screen
and then,
	% vi
