I couldn't understand how the discussion related with this problem, 
but I found the related description in lynx.cfg as below.

I see bright backgrounds *generally* can't be used.

In case of PDCurses under Windows, bright colors seem to be forced to
be converted into corresponded dark colors, nevertheless PDCurses can
show bright colors as background properly.

I think it's not bad idea that the conversion would be suppressed with
PDCurses under Windows.
