I can reproduce the issue with screen 4.0.3 in Debian Squeeze (the
previous Debian Stable release).

But it works fine for me in the screen package in Debian Wheezy (the
current Debian Stable release which sports a git snapshot of screen
from 2013-March-20).

So I suspect that the issue is already fixed in the git repository and
will be fixed with the next release of screen (and is already fixed in
many Linux distributions including Debian, Fedora and some of their

JFTR: I tried it both times in an uxterm (UTF-8 xterm).

With the screen git snapshot from 2013-March-20, both these cases
work fine for me:

env LC_TIME="de_DE.UTF-8" screen
env LC_TIME="de_DE.UTF-8" screen -U

Example used:

hardstatus alwayslastline "%H: %n %t | %w | %l | %c:%s %M"

(Yes, %M without day of month doesn't make much sense. :-)
