vi -- Turn off Line Number Colors and Screen Buffering

>From GNOME terminal, when I:

vi x
:set nu

the line numbers are colored, and I want to get rid of that.  Also, I
don't want the editor to do whatever special screen buffer swapping, or
whatever it is, that prevents me from scrolling back in my terminal
history when the editor is open, and then clears away the screen and
redisplays what was there before after the editor is closed.
