I'm using Arch Linux and GNU Screen version 4.6.2. When I set both the options "screen 1" (or any number) and "caption always" (or "hardstatus alwayslastline") in my .screenrc, and then I try to use the search function in any man page, every line on the screen appears duplicated. It happens only in the screen number defined in "screen 1" (or whatever number). It's reproducible in any Screen version that I could find, using any terminal emulator or even the console, and it happens at least in Arch and Gentoo.

A demonstration of this problem can be seen in this video:
