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

On the Linux console, M-x set-background-color has no effect.  In my
case, the background color is currently green and I want to set it to
black.  (set-background-color "black") ought to do the trick, I
believe.  If set-background-color is not supposed to work on a tty,
then this should be mentionend in the doc string.

Alex.
