All right. Thank you for the quick answer.

BTW, I have checked that the font-locking part of many .el files still
use the old ":bold t" (e.g., org-mode), and so, are misbehaving. I
understand that switching from bright to dark background on-the-fly is
not a common action. Nevertheless, a short line in the emacs
documentation (unless it is trivial to fix) would save a lot of
headaches :)

Cheers,
Jose
