I've looked at your screenshot a dozen times at least and I cannot see
the remanent color patches you are talking about.  So either I am
turning blind or they do not materialize on my display.  

Any way you can use gimp or whatever to highlight the artefacts .. via
circles .. arrows .. ?

Not that I will probably not be able to help anyway .. apart from
suggesting you give xterm a try .. that's what I am using .. and I have
never experienced this issue. 

Also, at least in my environment, CRTL-L usually redraws the screen and
usually takes care of removing whatever garbage I have on the display.
