I can reproduce this.  When you set the escape key via the screen 'escape'
command, it also makes a binding to the 'other' command, which is what
switches to the most recently-used window.  When you set the escape
sequence via the command line, it simply does not bind 'other' to
anything.  I would consider this to be a bug.

The workaround would be to make an additional screenrc with 'escape' and
'source' in it and use the '-c' option.

There is not; sorry.
