I can replicate this behavior. It looks like a escape code translation
error, but I can't pin it down. As you are using gnome-terminal which
seems to be setting TERM=xterm, you should be able to get away with
locally changing TERM for emacs, not a perfect workaround but it seems
to work here. For example you could run this within screen:

TERM=xterm emacs -nw somefile
