I didn't say that it *always* guesses wrong.  I just said that it *does*
guess wrong.  The nature of a guess is that it is sometimes wrong.  In
this case, I think it is frequently wrong, since in my experience most
of the modern virtual terminal software (both under Linux/Posix systems
and on Windows) defaults to a light background.

Guessing wrong is *much* worse than having only B&W text.
