Sure looks similar, thank you

One more data point, if I add 
  (setq initial-frame-alist default-frame-alist)
as in
  (add-to-list 'default-frame-alist '(background-color . "#333333"))
  (add-to-list 'default-frame-alist '(foreground-color . "White"))
  (add-to-list 'default-frame-alist '(cursor-color . "White")) 
  (setq initial-frame-alist default-frame-alist)
I get the correct green background in my initial Frame.

May I also ask, in another Gentoo GNU/Linux system running Gnome 2 I get
this after updating that install:

address@hidden ~ $ emacs

(emacs:2436): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: Attempt to add property 
GtkSettings::gtk-button-images after class was initialised

(emacs:2436): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: Attempt to add property 
GtkSettings::gtk-menu-popdown-delay after class was initialised

and I cannot figure out where the GLib warnings come from, any ideas?
