On my server i have a irssi (irc) session running in a screen.

everytime i connect to the server. I'm not sure if it is a good idea to

Got the same problem, I'm currently just using aterm instead to connect to remote servers. I didn't really investigate the issue further, though.
This is patched in Arch. Update screen.
Alternatively, just set screen's TERM to 'screen-256color' in .screenrc

urxvt*termName: rxvt-256color in .Xdefaults
term rxvt-256color in .screenrc
Makes everything work flawless. Full color support, no garbage left behind after you detach screen etc.
