I have a configuration(?) problem that's driving me crazy. Google shows

In one workstation the background is "full", meaning that text is white
and all the rest of the window is black (this is what I want). In
another, text is white and background is black, but the background is
just a strip enclosing the text, and the rest of the window has the
color of the terminal emulator (light yellow).

(I also tried compiling the latter without --with-screen=ncursesw, but
nothing changed.)

Couldn't find anything in the documentation. The /etc/lynx/lynx.* and
the ~/.lynx* files are the same in both cases!

(The testing URL is, but it happens for all
