Richard gave me a call today to show the wonders of tmux. Unfortunately, right off the bat I couldn't see color and there were a bunch of accented a's dividing the panes. After some trial and error and finding this post on the subject we got it working. The key is to configure SecureCRT to use xterm + ANSI colors and set the character set to UTF-8 and Use Unicode line drawing code points. Hooray! I'll be trying out tmux in day-to-day use to see if it will replace or augment screen for me.
