What are you using for your screen escape sequence?  If you use a
non-meta keypress, it uses those as a literal.  For instance, I use
"escape \\\\" for my control character (I just like it that way), so
if I paste something like 'printf("%s\n",foo);' then screen sees the
\n as a (under default keybindings) C-a,n.

Do you use anything which could be mucking that up?  Can you provide a
sample of the exact text being pasted?
