Best way to 256 color support on Vim+Tmux+Mintty when toggling light/dark background

Hi list,

I want a perfect Vim edit environment based on Pencil theme [1].
Toggle light/dark background without Tmux, it looked well.
The configuration involved:
- .bashrc, add custom Pencil theme by way of `echo -ne ...`
- .bashrc,  `export TERM=xterm-256color`
- .vimrc, add
    set t_Co=256
    colorscheme pencil

Even there's no problem when toggling the light/dark background.

However, toggling background looks horrible if under Tmux session,
with additional .tmux.conf that had:

    set -g default-terminal "xterm-256color"

I didn't use `set -g default-terminal "screen-256color"` because it
buggy the color render.

I am expecting who had a perfect solution for the problem?
