Changing theme doesn't have any effect on this.  Themes with a thick,
obvious frame just show what a big gap there is at the bottom of the
screen (between the last used line of text and the frame that is).

For example I'm running mutt at the moment whichputs a status line on
the last line of the window.  The status line is dark and there's a
whole line of light/background below it.

Hmm, I've just noticed an adjacent window is acting differently! Let me
exit and restart the system and see if anything has got sorted out.
