Latest dvtm git HEAD ships its own terminfo file and the one used can
be set via an environment variable, therefore

  DVTM_TERM=screen dvtm

would have the same effect as your patch. The proper way to fix the
emulation bugs would of course be to isolate the cause and then modify accordingly. However it works resonably well for the
applications I happen to use regularly, so feel free to send patches...
