I don't describe this well.  When in a Screen session, what should be
sent to the printer only is painted on the display.  (Thus it seems to
be some kind of problem with the redirection of stdout when in Screen.)

When evoking vtprint via Mutt from the login shell (csh) when not in
Screen, what is being printed is not displayed, only sent to the printer.

Perhaps this will ring a bell with someone.  Thanks to all who have
offered help so far.  (Still no luck, though. :(
