I know it sounds odd, but it gets even weirder than this:  when I start
screen at a later point of time (ie when rxvt's buffer is already plenty
full) then scroll-back suddenly works...

Ah, thank you.  That indeed works, but it feels somewhat strange to me
having to enter "copy mode" before I can scroll around.  For now this
solution will do though.  :-)

So again, thanks for your help!
