Still happens in screen (= 4.4.0-6) on Debian sid/x32.

Another reproducer is shown at https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?39330

I've fixed this bug for personal use, keep in mind the patch is incomplete in PrePutWinMsg since the `max` ptr has to be fixed up instead of disregarding it completely.

Use it however you will.

seems to incorrect calculates padding when using utf8 in hardstatus using %=
after removing special characters, there is no black space at the end

see screenshot
