Looking at the history of src/terminfo/screeninfo.src, it appears that
^H (written as \b here) is from the original screen terminfo file, but
was removed in version 4.0.0. Probably for problems just like this one.

In that case, I'm happy to treat it as a bug in old versions of screen.

If I get a chance, I'll poke around in Emacs to see if I can find out
why its behavior is different, and whether a similar approach might make
sense in Zile (I can't promise I'll actually get around to this,

I suspect that whatever it does is unlikely to be something I'm going to want to do. There will be few users who can't upgrade their screen to post-4.0.0. I see that 4.0.0 was released in 2003, so this really shouldn't be a problem much longer.
