for a quick check I don't see this on Linux with ncurses (but I can test
this on Solaris 7)

possibly it was flakey before I picked up those implicit stdscr's and
replaced them with LYwin - there're a few places I replaced refresh()
with LYrefresh() which means almost the same thing.

I need some info to make the same configuration:

        is this with curses, ncurses or slang

        what's $TERM set to (or infocmp output)

        what are the terminal's default colors (light gray could be a resource
        setting, or the way ANSI "white" is rendered by an application
        for xterm's background).
