Because I don't know if this is a bug or not, I'm sending the message here.
This build opens up TWO processes. One being the main emacs application, and
the other opens in what resembles a DOS screen with nothing but a cursor
that I can't seem to do anything with except move it around the screen.
If I try to close that, both processes terminate.  I don't recall this ever
happening in previous builds.
However, in a previous version I had a colour scheme problem which still
holds true.
For example, the opening line on the title screen: "Welcome to GNU Emacs,
one component of the GNU operating system."

This is in red, which is fine, except for "GNU Emacs" and "GNU" which is in
a bright turquoise shade.  So are the links and the build information.
This makes it VERY difficult to read and I'm wondering how to change the
default colours.  I know it's probably there somewhere but I'm having
trouble finding it.
True, I'm not fluent in Emacs but I still don't mind using beta versions,
and, the colour problem is not limited to this version anyhow, but also of
22.3.1 as well.
Prior to this I never had a problem.
