Re: trouble with utf-8 vbell_msg

The mail I sent yesterday was incorrect about the whole screen
flashing; it turns out that with all
the trial and error I changed the terminal somehow.  If I put
"termcapinfo putty* vb@" in ~/.screenrc,
then I get the status line message.

The problem with not being able to get a utf-8 message remains,
however.  Specifically, if I put
'vbell_msg " ワン! ワン!"' in ~/.screenrc, I get " ã�¯ã�³ï¼� ã�¯ã�³ï¼�" as
the message.
It doesn't matter if I have "encoding UTF-8" or not.

Sorry for the incomplete report yesterday,
