Here a simplified test case:

set TERM to vt100 (so that the frame background is considered to be 'dark by 

Save this as test.el: 
 '(font-lock-string-face ((((class color) (min-colors 88) (background light)) 
(:foreground "RosyBrown4")))))

emacs -nw -q -l test.el 
M-x server-start RET

Now run:


look in the emacsclient frame at font-lock-string face, the foreground
will be nil.

Somehow the faces are not initialized correctly. My suspicion is that
when the faces are computed the background mode might no be set

Can somebody that knows how these things are supposed to work take a
look ?
