Hmm.  Something I've noticed in Ncurses-based apps is that blank areas

problem with a simple explanation.  Some capability that needs to be
set or unset in my terminfo entry?

Yes - that sounds as if you are using a terminal description with "bce" set, on a terminal which does not clear the background on an erase.

That reminds me that rxvt has a bug - one of the cases for erasure does not work - which I work around in ncurses by leaving out the "bce".
