AFAIU, the problem manifests itself in the inability of Emacs to load
the colors it wants to use.  So one possible workaround would be to
find out which colors it _can_ load, and customize the 'fringe' face
to use one of those colors.

To find which colors are available, use "M-x list-colors-display".
