      bash works for the "~" expansion - but it depends on the shell whether that works.

      Also, it's possible that screen is linked to the legacy termcap library on
      Solaris rather than /usr/lib/termcap (which sym-links to libcurses). You
      can check that using ldd. If it's linked to the legacy termcap library,
      you can't use TERMINFO to fix it.

      In screen (unless you have overridden TERM), env will show the TERMCAP
      variable, which gives screen's notion of whatever (termcap or terminfo)
      it is using.
