Typically that's caused by doing a CLS (which, by default, fills only the visible part of the console buffer) and then scrolling down past the point which you've cleared. You can fill the entire console buffer with your choice of colors by doing something like:

cls /c black on bright white
If you want to do this in your TCSTART.BTM file, it's a good idea to check for transient or pipe shells first:

if "%_transient%%_pipe" == "00" cls /c black on bright white
