You might try Esc-\ as an alternative, I suspect that would avoid
screen waiting for an escape sequence that's never coming.  Or if you
were using the public domain korn shell (pdksh) you can configure it
it to do TAB completion.

Of course if this were to cause you to go out and get a new shell,
bash and zsh have much more powerful completion mechanisms anyway.
I don't like bash, but zsh absolutely rules!
