Patch attached that fixes it for me.

I will push to gui-release unless everyone thinks its important enough to go to stable? :)

After a while (but unpredictably) it works OK and the entire terminal has the right background color. Often that happens after e.g.,

more off
help strread

(so that enough pages scroll by automatically)

(I have reported quite a few issues, incl. this one, maybe a year ago; but stopped reporting because at the time the GUI was still a bit in its infancy; I feared the GUI devs would only get frustrated by piles of bug reports.
Good thing that Felipe started combing through the GUI now that it nears completion.)

The Windows qterminal doesn't appear to paint the background with the background set in preferences, always painting white.

Where characters are actually drawn, it does paint the correct colors.

This works for me on Linux. I will test later on windows.
