I think this is a bug, screen should not use the xterm compatibility
hack if the "colors" terminfo entry is greater than 8.

The xterm code works like this: most xterms understand 16 colors, but
have colors#8 in the terminfo. Because of this, screen writes both
the bright and dark codes to the terminal if $TERM looks like xterm.

As a workaround, you can add

    termcapinfo putty* XT

to your ~/.screenrc.
