*Thank you* for this feature.  I've wanted this ever since I learned

instantaneous.  If I then run ^a| and run the same command in a
narrower window, my CPU usage goes to 100% and there is a great deal
of flickering in the terminal.  In addition, it takes a noticeably
longer time to run "ps aux."  As a control, running "ps aux" in a
plain screen window (not split) or a plain xterm of comparable width
results in the faster behavior, so I'm lead to think that screen is
