To reproduce this bug:

1) set the locale to utf8 (such as LC_CTYPE=zh_CN.utf8)
2) within GNU screen shell, cat the attached cjk-punc-utf8.txt. you should see that it show CJK punctuations correctly in screen.
3) use C-a :copy to select the result
4) use C-a :writebuf -e gbk cjk-punc-gbk.txt to re-encode it as gbk.
5) open cjk-punc-gbk.txt (using gedit --encoding=gbk or firefox or even hexdump -C), you can see that although the chinese characters are encoded corrently, the quotes punctuations are not (and becomes "?"0x3f)

I have check /usr/share/screen/utf8encodings/19, and the translation table seems correct. So maybe there is something wrong in the code encodings.c?
