Agreed. The problem seems to be that tty-colors.el and color-name-rgb-alist
don't use the same of scaling. 
Do you want me to do check if rescaling the values in
color-name-rgb-alist gives good results?

By "fixes" I meant all the patches that I posted together, I did not
test them separately. (anyway the tty-colors.el patch should have zero
influence on what I saw because AFAICT that code path is only used
when creating a color from  #RGB, xterm-register-default-colors does
its own scaling).
If you don't want the tty-colors.el changes, then ene of the changes
in xterm.el, the one to xterm-rgb-convert-to-16bit is not good, it
should be 

        (lsh prim 8)
instead of:
  (logior prim (lsh prim 8))

The patch to xterm-standard-colors is obviously correct, so I could
check that in right now if you want.

Will do.

Well that you too, our private mail discussion put me on the right
track to find out what the problem was.
