Window background color

How does one set the background color of a window?

I use `face-remapping-alist' to define a `default' face for a buffer, with a specific background color. This works fine unless the buffer is small and does not fill the whole window, or if I scroll to the end. The area between the last line of the buffer and the bottom of the window is drawn in the frame's background color, rather than in the background color assigned with the default face in that buffer.

(I see this in a 23 CVS (Cocoa port) build.)

It appears that only a frame parameter is used and that the frame is cleared using a rif->clear_frame_area call, which is not specific to windows. I haven't found the right fix for this so far. Would it be sensible to change clear_frame_area to establish the right background color, i.e. the one associated with the default face appropriate for the buffer shown in the window (updated_window), and only default to the frame's background?
