commit dc863d95f5e2e35cefbab1cbc340762fffab102d

    coreinfo: change the foreground/background colors
    The default curses library changed from tinycurses to
    PDCurses. PDCurses fails to fill the entire active screen with
    the assigned background colors when it writes 'blank' chars.
    This will allow the menues to look better until I resolve that.
