In fact, it seems to be more of a flow control problem.  defslowpaste 1
helps to work around it.  The limit of pasting text into screen is 300
characters, which is the queue size in term if I am not mistaken.

       slowpaste msec

       Define  the  speed  at  which text is inserted into the current
       window by the paste ("C-a ]") command.  If the slowpaste value is
       nonzero text is written character  by character.  screen will
       make a pause of msec milliseconds after each single charac짯
       ter write to allow the application to process its input. Only use
       slowpaste if your underlying  system  exposes  flow  control
       problems while pasting large amounts of text.

Anybody interesting in checking where the problem exactly is, and how it
could be fixed?  Debugging the term on the pty shouldn't be too hard.
