(Past the text by going into insert and then pressing shift+insert).

Yes - running vim outside screen (xterm, gnome-terminal etc.) works fine. Running it in screen, in either an xterm or a gnome-terminal gives the problematic behaviour. Xorg CPU usage is noticably higher with gnome-terminal and the delay (several minutes for gnome-terminal) between pasting and some text appearing in the editor feels slightly less, but the same basic problem persists.

There is no problem when pasting into vim running in a plain xterm (no screen).

This may not solve your problem, but just in general I find it much nicer to use freenx and the NX client from www.nomachine.com for the things I might otherwise have done with screen. That is, leave a desktop running under freenx on a stable, well connected machine with an assortment of terminal windows, perhaps ssh'd to other systems. You can disconnect the NX client with everything running and reconnect later even from other locations just like screen except with a full GUI desktop and very good remote performance after the initial screen draw. If you haven't tried it, it is much more responsive on remote connections than other remote X approaches and cross platform clients are easy to install.
