Description greg lonnon 2005-04-25 19:21:13 UTC
Description of problem:

When displaying emacs from redhat 9 to a FedoraCore 3 machine, the background
color is not displayed correctly.  The background color changes from gray to
white.  If the .emacs file is run on a rh9 or a fc3 machine it works correctly.
  This only occurs if emacs is running on a redhat9 machine and the display is
sent to a fedora core 3 machine using ssh.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

rh9 : emacs 21.2.1

How reproducible:

Use this .emacs file.

(add-to-list 'default-frame-alist '(background-color . "gray"))

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to a FC3 machine (X11 running on the machine)
2. ssh to a rh9 machine, X11 port forwarding enabled. (-X)
3. emacs .emacs
Actual results:

The emacs background should be gray.  In fact, all frames should be gray.  But,
the background is white.  If the same .emacs is run locally  rh9/fc3 X11
display, it works correctly, all frames are background gray. 

Expected results:

The frames are gray.

And this is not a RHL9 emacs bug?  It works ok from FC2 say, you mean? :)

Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2005-05-18 02:49:25 UTC
What happens if you ssh to the local fc3 box?

I just tested this, and I can't reproduce the problem here.
