This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.1.1 (i686-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)
 of 2001-10-31 on confusibombus
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

When I start Emacs using a dark background (due to setting a dark
background color and a light foreground color in .Xresources), the
default faces look ok.  When I try to quit Emacs via the menu while a
process is running, I am asked the following question in a dialog box:

Active processes exist; kill them and exit anyway? (yes or no) 

This dialog box uses my default (light) foreground color and a light
grey background.  This is practically illegible.  I was unable to
determine wether any face controls this.

My .Xresources:

Emacs*Background:               #304020
Emacs*Foreground:               NavajoWhite
Emacs*Font:                     7x14
Emacs*toolBar:                  0

The bug is that my Foreground color is taken into account, but my
Background color is not.  This results in illegible text in the dialog
