OK, in the end the unicode solution was a shell-related fluke, but replacing all double backslashes by 4 backslashes does work.

Looks like I found a workaround, replacing double backslashes by backslash unicode pair >>> \u005c\u005c <<< appears to work.

Hi, all,

In Screen v4.3.1 (and also v4.2.1) on Mac OS X, I am unable to send >>> -X stuff \\ <<< (double backslash) - nothing appears in the target window. In v4.00.03 (FAU) 23-Oct-06 (which shipped with Mac OS), this sequence sends just fine and shows up as >>> \ <<< (single backslash).

This is not mere curiosity for me  - I am working on a dev environment window manager which sends fairly complicated shell-escaped commands into the window, which sometimes result in sequences of backslashes. 

Any workarounds much appreciated!
