This bug was fixed in the package screen-profiles - 1.18-0ubuntu1

screen-profiles (1.18-0ubuntu1) jaunty; urgency=low

  * debian/install: install all non-ubuntu profiles into
    /usr/share/screen-profiles/profiles/misc; install the ubuntu-light
    profile as "ubuntu-light"
  * debian/rules: call the generate-profiles script as part of the
    get-orig-source target; dh_link the ubuntu-light profile to ubuntu (to
    maintain legacy compatibility to existing ~/.screenrc-profile's)
  * profiles/debian,fedora,redhat,ubuntu: removed since these are auto
    generated now
  * profiles/debian-dark,debian-light,fedora-dark,fedora-light,redhat-dark,
    redhat-light,ubuntu-dark,ubuntu-light: new, autogenerated profiles
  * profiles/generate-profiles: shell script that will generate profiles
    using a skel file and a set of custom "logos"
  * profiles/logos/*: extracted the unique logo component of each profile
    and dropped in here
  * profiles/profile.skel: skeleton profile functionality, to be sed-upon
    by the generate-profiles script
  * select-screen-profile: some hackery to work around the fact that we now
    have a 'misc' directory in the profile listing, as well as a possibly
    duplicated ubuntu and ubuntu-light profiles
  * select-screen-profile & screen: move the environment sanitation code
    to the screen script, such that it is executed each time screen is run,
    rather than on screen profile selection only
  * screen-profiles-helper: add support for keybinding selection, LP: #321735
  * debian/install, keybindings/none: install an empty set of keybindings for
    the "none" selection
  * profiles/common: strip out the automatic loading of the common
    keybindings now that each user sets this in their local
  * profiles/generate-profiles, profiles/profile.skel: drop the grep of the
    caption, put it the skeleton
  * select-screen-profile: remove (), LP: #322833

just to say that i had to uninstall screen-profile from my laptop to allow me to use screen command.



You could have alternatively selected the profile entitled "none",
which should allowed you to run plain screen, without any of
screen-profiles' enhancements.
