When I run "cgdb" to debug a program through screen having LC_ALL=C.UTF-8 enabled the "drawing" characters rendered wrongly like the attached image (wrong.png) instead of the (correct.png).
The issue doesn't happen without screen directly in xterm.

The "xterm" has utf8 enabled
I am enabling "utf8 on" on screenrc.

I've tried also to enable "screenrc" "term xterm"
where garbage characters appear on the screen.
