GNU Screen and Emacs

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I upgraded recently to OpenSuSE 12.1 from 11.3 and now when I open any files in emacs from inside a screen session, I get a blank buffer. Let's say I open it as: emacs myFile.txt it will open to an empty buffer, not the file, and when I attempt to save something, it will ask for a file name to write to. This worked before the upgrade. I assume screen is the issue here since emacs works fine outside of screen. Is there something I'm missing in the screen settings or is this a bug in something? (HowTos)
