Hm, I have no .Xdefaults file and the Emacs related content of the
.Xresources file is in my first message.  The important ones are

Emacs*Background:               #304020
Emacs*Foreground:               NavajoWhite

When I comment these out, the dialog uses black on grey.  When I use
these two resources, however, the dialog users navajo white on grey.
It uses the foreground resource and not the background resource.

Sorry for being unclear.  Does it make more sense now?
