I have an issue with the Vim color schemes: The background color does not fill the whole screen. For example, in the "blue" color scheme the whole screen should turn blue. Instead, the blue background only extends to the end of each line. Is this a setting in the console I'm missing or is this an issue with my vim default settings?
I'm only having this issue with Ubuntu 10.10.
echo $TERM outputs
[Update]: To eliminate error sources my minimal ~/.vimrc looks like this:

/etc/vim/vimrc contains the unchanged defaults of Ubuntu
