I am using Screen in a en_US.UTF-8 locale, inside an xterm. I am using the xterm standard escape sequence to set the window title.  I have a the following problem: There is no problem with the Basic Latin (ASCII) characters (Unicode <  0+007F), but also with Latin1 Supplement characters (U+0080 <= Unicode < U+00FF), are displayed OK. However, other characters are displayed incorrectly: for example, the command

echo '\e]0;αβγ\a\c'

in a normal Xterm shows the title


but in screen version 4.00.03jw4 (FAU) 2-May-06 (from the CVS) show the title


Comparing Unicode, it replaces U+03B1 GREEK SMALL LETTER ALPHA with  U+00B1 PLUS-MINUS SIGN and so on, i.e, the Unicode  values seem to be taken modulo U+0100.
