Question Trailing whitespaces ( space char) and Ncurses terminal refreshes

I am looking for tips/infos about terminal refresh in ncurses programing.

When not local, the terminal skips whitespaces ( such as space caracters)
surely to optimize the speed of the refresh to the remote connection.
That makes the terminal screen to look ...ugly and not easy to read ( ex. run jed remotely and choose a theme which has backgound color different to the term bg).

What I ask for is how to force the whole ncurses screen to be sent ( or locally set the term to not ignore trailing whitespaces...which I dunno what is actually done )...

I read all I thought where to find terminal/ncurses stuff wihtout finding related doc.

Any experienced nurses/terminal(remote) programer ?
