I faced a very similar problem assigning screen as shell for some user 
accounts, I have to setup SHELL environment variable.

I could find my problem comparing the env output from a xterm session which 
is working properly with env screen session, making use of 
env && sleep 10 commands in a custom shell script, it's a dirty way of 
doing it but it works for me.

I hope you can at least find the difference between to sessions.
