These colors are used by the tooltips (a.k.a. ``balloon help''), so the 
problem happens when Emacs wants to display a tooltip, e.g., to explain a 
menu item.

I thought blanks (and letter case) are insignificant in X color names.  
Aren't they?

FWIW, I don't have any problems with grey95 and lightyellow on Solaris 2.8.

Is it possible that some other program running on the same system uses up 
too many colors, thus preventing Emacs from using them?
