os x screen wuff — wuff

problem:
your ssh'ed into a linux server via os x terminal and backspace/tab produce (maybe other strokes) 'wuff — wuff!!' when using a screen.

impact:
highly fsking annoying!

solution:
found the solution to this problem on another blog.

just whack the following in your .bashrc / .bash_profile on the destination server

alias screen='TERM=screen screen'
