Ubuntu screen backspace problem fix

Are you trying to use screen for some application and you have strange backspace behaviour? Mine was doing nothing when I hit the backspace except give me the famous Wuff --- Wuff ! To fix this you need to add something to either your /etc/bash.bashrc (global fix) or ~/.bashrc (local fix) like this:

alias screen='TERM=screen screen'
