What is your pager?

Could you try with:

<Ctrl-A>H (to save the output in ~/screenlog.n)

PAGER=cat man xterm


PAGER=cat TERM=xterm-256color man xterm

And look at the corresponding line in screenlog.n.

Here, in any case, I get:

      -^H-1^H13^H32^H2    Normally, the VT102 DECCOLM escape

or if I reenable grotty's sgr that debian disabled (in

       ^[[1m-132    ^[[22mNormally, the VT102 DECCOLM
       (note that \e[22m is in no terminfo entry, so I guess
       grotty doesn't use the terminfo database)

So, it may be your pager that behaves differently in one case
and the other, but I can't think why. I can see no problem with
either of more, less, most, pg or w3m here.

Also what is the value of $TERM before you start screen? It
is important that it is xterm-256color so that screen knows the
terminal capabilities.
