I can't. How will I send a line without Return working?

Here's how I determined Screen to be the problem:

  1) It's not the app:
     a) app (SBCL) works correctly outside the defective screen
     b) other apps in the same Screen (shell) exhibit the same behaviour

  2) It's not the terminal:
     I have tried different terminal emulators

  3) Additional evidence:
     I have never seen this happening outside of Screen.

Hope that helps...
