ok - knows about 8 colors.

xterm-color (the one defined in ncurses, at any rate) doesn't specify bce
(XFree86 xterm implements bce).  That's a source of some problems such as the
one you had to type ^L for.  This is what I have:

comparing xterm-r6 to xterm-color.
    comparing booleans.
    comparing numbers.
        colors: NULL, 8.
        pairs: NULL, 64.
    comparing strings.
        op: NULL, '\E[m'.
        setab: NULL, '\E[4%p1%dm'.
        setaf: NULL, '\E[3%p1%dm'.

it's been a long day but it sounds backwards - if you're seeing white
(not light gray) on the screen then it sounds as if curses is thinking
that the clearing operations spread the current colors around, but don't
I'll have to set this up on Solaris and check (right now I'm trying to
squeeze a short patch for xterm in between some repair/cleanup).

no - output from
        appres XTerm

would show the rest of the info.
