I got there through "Customize->Faces->Font-lock" and soforth. If I start it
with -Q option I get again the default colors and they always stick.

One of the developers mailed me the solution: on this Mac Version you have
to drag your colors onto the faces you want to change from the color window
you get from "Windows->Color". To change the background you use shift-drag.
After you're done, you select "Options->Save Options" and then the colors
stick -- at last.

Nevertheless, thanks for your input and time
