For me the erroneous output is
which then on a subsequent resize of the terminal emulator window changes to
(yes with U+FFFD replacement symbols).

I tried to port this 7 year old patch to master, maybe I messed it up, but it doesn't properly fix the bug for me. With the patch the output becomes
and remains so after a resize.

Screen outputs screen "ÿ" after a connected character.
This is a character without the need. This issue happens in UTF-8 environment.

Before :
screen$ ruby1.9.1 -e 'puts "\u304b\u3099.."'
patch applied :
screen $ ruby1.9.1 -e 'puts "\u304b\u3099.."'

Murata-san (mrkn@ruby-lang.org) made the patch which revised this problem.
