When running sysinst from -current on the VGA console of an i386
system, the text is shown in white on a blue background, but those
parts of the screen that do not contain text are not blue as they
should be, but black.  This is unsightly.  See the screenshot in
<>.  This
happens both on physical machines and in qemu; it does not happen
when installing 3.0.


Either try to install -current on a physical i386 machine, or do this:

  pkg_add qemu
  qemu -m 64 -fda boot-big.fs -boot a


Not known.  I don't even know if this is a bug in sysinst, curses,
termcap, or wscons.
