Please fix. Still happening to me with up to date Karmic. xterms come up white, even though:

john@localhost:/etc/X11/Xresources$ cat x11-common
! $Id$

! load color-specific resources for clients that have them
#ifdef COLOR
*customization: -color
#endif

! make Xaw (Athena widget set) clients understand the delete key
! this causes problems with some non-Xaw apps, use with care
! *Text.translations: #override ~Shift ~Meta <Key>Delete: delete-next-character()

and /etc/X11/app-defaults/XTerm-color contains:

! Set the default text foreground and background colors.
*VT100*foreground: gray90
*VT100*background: black

Any chance to fix this before karmic release?
