Dear mailing list,

I've got some troubles with set-cursor-color.

I use the emacs23-nox version of Debian in a unicode-rxvt terminal. Color 
support seems good (88 colors according to list-colors-display and I can see 
them too).
However when I do (set-cursor-color "brightwhite") nothing happens : the cursor 
remains grey and doesn't get white. I've tried "red" too, no success neither...
I've emptied my .emacs file but it doesn't help.

On the web, many reference to the XTERM env. variable are made, but since emacs 
shows me many colors, I guess my setup is right.

I've no idea if this is a bug... Is it ? Or isn't  set-cursor-color the proper 
way to set the cursor's color ?

Best regards,
