The secondary screen functionality on my xterm (rxvt-unicode) was acting
strangly. So, following the advice at:
I added an rxvt-unicode termcap entry to my termcap file and ran
cap_mkdb. After login, I'm able to 'setenv TERM rxvt-unicode' and
everything works perfectly.
However, when running urxvt initially, it detects the $TERM as 'rxvt',
not 'rxvt-unicode'. How is the $TERM variable determined by the system?
Is there a way to detect my new termcap entry? Any help would be
