Description of problem:
Screen is not displaying correctly with some programs. For example, the ntsysv
program display is garbled in screen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run gnome-terminal or xterm
2. Run ntsysv (as root). Everything is fine. Quit
3. Run screen
4. Run ntsysv. The screen is messed up. quit
5. rpm -e screen. Install screen from RH7.3. Repeat above steps, and
everything is fine.
Actual Results: The screen is garbled. I have a screenshot.
Expected Results: Proper display
RH7.3 has screen-3.9.11-3. Works fine.
RH8.0 has screen-3.9.11-10. Doesn't work.

Garbled screen (ignore ???--that's not the problem)

What it looks like with RH7.3's screen
I slightly goofed with the first attachment. The ??? may be another
manifestation of the problem.
Screen, as shipped with RHL8.0 does not support UTF-8 character encodings, which
is the default.
Put this in your .bashrc for now:
alias ntsysv 'LANG=`echo $LANG | sed -e s/\.UTF-8//g` /usr/sbin/ntsysv'
alias ntsysv 'LANG=C /usr/sbin/ntsysv'
Please see bug #78392; I will keep that one more up to date.
