I don't know of any screen commands that do this. I would expect it to
be a property of the terminal; a setting of stty. See what stty says
about the ocrnl or similar options when you do "stty -a".

This isn't useful information until you describe how you determined
this. Note too that just because the problem is only exhibited in screen
doesn't actually mean that screen is the source of the problem. There
are certainly a number of bugs I've found that only happened in screen
(or even specific versions of screen), but wound up to be clear glitches
in (say) libvte or gnome-terminal. (Not saying it isn't screen's fault,
but experience has taught me that placing responsibility is usually very
difficult until the actual problem has been determined.)
