This has nothing to do with mintty and everything to do with screen
and its configuration, unless you can show that mintty displays
identical output differently from xterm, in which case you'd have
found a compatibility issue.

I'd be quite surprised if it did, assuming identical configuration.
Please provide instructions to show the difference, including TERM
setting at the point screen is invoked and your .screenrc if
necessary. (Keep in mind that I don't know an awful lot about Screen.)
