How about "all of the above"? I've seen this on a Linux console, under
xterm, in PuTTY (a Win32 SSH client), in GNU Screen on all three, etc.
Under X11 and w32 window systems the modeline always appears white-on-
blue as expected.

Additionally, it seems that this does not happen under 21.0.102, so
presumably something relevant changed inbetween that pretest and the
released 21.1.

Thanks for the help, Eli!

To raise the issue of Tigger's parentage is to invite all sorts of
other questions. What happened to Roo's father? Why is Rabbit a
bachelor? Where are Pooh's pants?
