Xemacs, when launched in graphical mode (under X) displays light-grey holes (see
attached screenshot). As you can see that I have changed the default colours
for the background and foreground. Two things are of interest in the screenshot:
1. The huge grey stripe on the right.
2. Smaller grey strips along the left and bottom window borders. I think
that it's interesting that they are not continuous (i.e. they don't span
the entire border).
I have been having this problem with Xemacs for a while, but it became a lot
less bearable lately: before I just used to have the small thin grey stripes
along the window borders, but now this monster one! ;^) I wonder if this is
something that I'm doing wrong or a bug.
Currently I'm using 2.4.10-r2. The output of emerge info is below:

Xemacs window snapshot
can you please test out the new xemacs-21.4.12 ebuild and see if it fixes your
I tried xemacs 21.4.12, and it still exhibits the same problem.
I have no idea whether this bug is specific to Gentoo. Perhaps I should open a bug with the Xemacs project?
Mass re-assign of really stale bugs; xemacs herd, please verify the status and
close them if these issues no longer exist.
Try w/ 21.4.17, reopen if it still doesn't work.
Blah, wrong resolution.
TEST-REQUEST that is...
