There are altogether 5 faces defined in dictem.el.

With "emacs -nw -q -l dictem.el" in xterm, two of them initialize to
light background values and three of them to dark background values:

              | dictem-reference-definition-face | light |
              | dictem-reference-m1-face         | light |
              | dictem-reference-m2-face         | dark  |
              | dictem-reference-dbname-face     | dark  |
              | dictem-database-description-face | dark  |

Whatever emacs assumes for its background mode, something is wrong. I
hope someone can see this problem and fix it.
