[issue2792] color: wrong mode detected in screen

New submission from Eric Eisner <ede at mit.edu>:

When in screen, hg output that is colored and paged shows these weird ^O 
characters before and after each colored line. This behavior occurs when 
TERM=screen, and running hg with TERM=xterm completely fixes it.

I bisected this regression to e0f07847f8de (color: add support for terminfo-
based attributes and color). Manually setting color.mode=ansi also fixes it.
