 I found out that my fix only fully works if TERM=vt100 before you start
 screen. If TERM=xterm, it only works half: no OOPSes, but the alternate
 characters are not shown in the alternate character set (so instead of
 line drawing you get some letters).
 This does work on i386 (although that binary was compiled a lot longer
 ago). There must be some other 64-bit bug lurking somewhere. It's not
 that the termcap entry for xterm is too long, since it is just within
 the 1024 bytes mark.
