It's systemd's fault indeed. Here's the allegedly "proper way" to do it (as fair
as I could find):

  # execute once on each machine
  loginctl enable-linger

  # and painfully execute this every time you want screen to survive
  systemd-run --scope --user screen

Thanks a lot for the responses and sorry for the fuss.
