All I can suggest is to turn on logging within screen (C-a H), and then
as soon as you can see that problem again, stop logging and send us the
file (it's a binary file that _appears_ to be text; don't be fooled,
don't try to copy/paste, but attach the original file). If it's a large
file, maybe post it somewhere and send the link, or just send to me.
