i've got access to two linux boxes where alt_charset in screen seems broken. on a third linux box (and several freebsd boxes) it works fine. the difference seems to be the locale, which does not adversely affect alt_charset in other terminal emulators.

screenshots and explanations:

1) the way things should work with alt_charset behaving properly on a recent linux install. the locale is set to "POSIX".

2) broken. this is also a recent linux box. the alt_charset is hosed and the locale is set to "en_US.UTF-8". note that some of the output is displayed as double-characters.

3) using the same box as #2 i ran "export LC_CTYPE=C" before starting screen. then under screen the alt_charset is displayed correctly.

is there an easy way to properly fix this? am i doing something wrong? or is this a bug in screen?
