I use this line in .screenrc:

hardstatus string '%{= kG}[ %{G}%H %{g}][%= %{= kw}%?%-Lw%?%{r}(%{W}%n*%f%t%?(%u)%?%{r})%{w}%?%+Lw%?%?%= %{g}][%{B} %Y-%m-%d %{W}%c %{g}]'

It puts red parenthesis around active screen name. But, when I select last screen in list, it ignores this config and puts white parenthesis around screen name.

Follow example in screenshots.
