bug#9982: M-x load-theme does not change background color

I tested originally with emacs -Q.

I originally found the problem in an XFCE environment. I tried it out
on Gnome, and it seemed to work fine. So it may be related to some
kind of system theme.

Another thought is that my XFCE environment has GTK3 libs installed,
whereas the gnome environment has only GTK2 libs, so it might be
related to that. Is there a way to check whether emacs is linking
against GTK2 or GTK3?
