Interesting.  I use dictem.el on both X and xterm and don't have the
reported problem.  On xterm, Emacs correctly determines the background
color of this face.

On closer investigation, I discovered that Emacs doesn't determine
the background mode only when dictem.el is loaded from the command line
with `-nw -l dictem.el', as Leo did according to his report.

Really, when started only with `-nw' and without `-l dictem.el',
and later loading dictem.el with (load "dictem.el"),
default-frame-background-mode is 'light.


emacs --batch --eval '(message "mode: %s" default-frame-background-mode)'


mode: nil
