Using Unix screen cmd effecting Vi editor


I enjoy using the unix screen utility, but my vi sessions lose the ability to syntax highlight code and split screen(:vs or :sp). When not using screen, I can do those things within vi. Anybody experience this and know the fix?

This is not a scripting question. I think you better chance googling or posting on the screen users mailing list.
