frames do not inherit specified window colors


From: Daniel Ortmann
Subject: frames do not inherit specified window colors
Date: 15 Jan 2001 18:32:18 -0600

This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
 not to your local site managers!!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

In GNU Emacs 20.7.1 (i386--freebsd, X toolkit)
 of Fri Sep 22 2000 on pyrl.eye
configured using `configure  --with-x-toolkit --with-pop --prefix=/usr/local 
i386--freebsd'

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

I have the following in my .emacs file, choosing to set colors
explicitly rather than rely on .Xdefaults, etc.  This is useful when
debugging problems using someone else's unix session.  A simple "emacs
-u ortmann" sets up my preferred colors, avoiding unproductive mucking
with .Xdefaults files:

(if window-system
    (progn
      (set-foreground-color "tan3")
      (set-background-color "gray5")
      (set-cursor-color     "green3")
      (set-mouse-color      "lightgreen")
      (set-border-color     "gray5")
      ))

The problem is that when I open another frame, I am missing my colors!

As a work-around I pull up my .emacs file, search for my colors, and C-x
C-e to evaluate & set the colors.

Could new frames please inherit colors from .Xdefaults ONLY if not
already set explicitly?  If they *are* already set explicitly, as above,
could those colors please be used?

Thanks!
