If you want try GNU screen for kindle - here you are...:

It's very usefull for:
- reattaching the disconnected session (when KindleTerm was closed)
- multiple windows
- horizontal split (e.g. two 66x26 character regions)
- copy&paste
- scrolling

Before you run screen, make sure the terminal size (LINES x COLUMNS) is OK...
Code:
stty size
Usually after running KindleTerm the term size is set to 24 x 80 (and you see only C....0 and cursor). Rarely you can see complete Welcome message and the size is set correctly 54 x 66 (or 40 x 88 for landscape).

So I decided to set the correct size every time before running screen:
Code:
stty rows 54 cols 66
screen -R
After a while I got used to Ctrl-a ... (middle, middle, a) key sequence...
