Default Failures in allocColor() with FC6 in 1.0-9746 and 1.0-9755

I attempted to update to the newest Fedora Core 6 kernel and the newest nvidia driver and ran into problems with some programs failing to allocate colors. For example, attempting to run emacs fails with the message 'Undefined color: "black"'. Xterm has similar problems when running with the default color-coded alias for 'ls': it issues messages like "xterm: Cannot allocate color blue2".

Here are my details. According to nvidia-settings I have Nvidia driver version: 1.0-9746, graphics card is GeForce 7300 LE, VBIOS Version: 05.72.22.41.31, memory: 512 MB, X screens: Screen 0 (Xinerama), Display Devices: DELL 1907FP (DFP-0), DELL 1907FP (CRT-0).

Running "uname -a" returns "Linux mendota 2.6.20-1.2300.fc5smp #1 SMP Sun Mar 11 19:46:40 EDT 2007 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux".

I also tried the 1.0-9755 release, with the same results. Any advice would be appreciated.

Cheers,

Jim
