This issue does not occur when I compiled screen myself, using this tarball:

8506fd205028a96c741e4037de6e3c42 screen-4.0.3.tar.gz

Problematic one was from the one that came with Ubuntu 9.10, Screen version 4.00.03jw4 (FAU) 2-May-06

When printing a Japanese kanji characters (maybe other unicode characters too) to the screen one per line, the vertical portion of the printout shifts to the right once per character.

The screenshot I attached will make this much clearer than what I can describe.

I noticed this in Vim too.

My screen version: Screen version 4.00.03jw4 (FAU) 2-May-06 (I didn't see this version in the dropdown)

Setup: Putty 0.61 on Win7 x64
