Thanks for your help. I'm glad you were at least able to reproduce the problem. I'll try experimenting with removing things from my .emacs file to see if that makes a difference. 

BTW, sounds like our monitors display the grey a little differently. My second monitor is much lighter, but my macbook pro seems dark. The green or magenta text on a grey background is virtually unreadable.

I get the same list for list-color-display that you got.  I have a
black menu with white text at the top.  My mode lines are black with
white.  My normal text is black on white background.  The *scratch*
butter starts with a "red" messages on white background.

All of these are muted slightly... the red is not full on and the
write is very slightly grey.  But it sounds like your grey is darker.

My guess is the terminfo on Ubuntu is not exactly compatible with
Mac's but that seems rather unlikely.

My second guess is Ubuntu has modified emacs in this area but that
also seems unlikely.

I don't know enough about how the colors and faces all interact or how
to customize them.  Hopefully someone else on this list will pipe up.

You might try not using the daemon approach and, in particular, try
starting without using your init file.  Perhaps there is something
in there that is confusing things.

Sorry I can't be more help.
