Dear Sirs or Madams:

I am trying to use GNU screen as a backend for resumable NX sessions.

I was wondering if there exists a solution to turn off _all_ control characters 
in a screen session?

Thank you

I suspect you want to turn off all control sequences, not just control characters. You want past eight bit characters without the need for any escape sequences. Right?

A better solution may be dtach. I like it better than screen because I use Emacs and I don't care about multiple screens a single terminal session. The reason I don't use it is because I can't invoke it with the logic "use the first unattached session or create a new session." I want this capability because it would let me stick the head end invocation inside of a login script and solve 90% of my reconnection problems very very simply.
