Amadeusz Sławiński <address@hidden> put forth the proposition:
Follow-up Comment #5, bug #53602 (project screen):

Yes, you can post there.
No, as far as I remember it won't propagate.

You can also ping me on #screen on freenode, for faster discussion.

I have finally found the cause - Slackware 14.2 uses glibc 2.23,
which doesn't have support for unicode 9.0. The wcwidth of the
particular characters are reported as '1', whereas in unicode 9.0 '2'
is reported.

The testing branch of Slackware has glibc 2.27, so I guess I'll have
to keep screen reverse-patched until that is released.
