What exactly _does_ happen?  Do you get the default background color?
If so, perhaps your color palette is depleted (closing other GUI
applications, like Netscape, might help), or maybe DarkSlateGray is
not in your rgb.txt.

Does it work to use the "#RRGGBB" notation instead of "DarkSlateGray"?
Does it work to say "DarkSlateGrey" (note the `e' instead of `a')?
