It is unrelated to Windows 7, but it is indeed a bug.
x-load-color-file was converting its argument to an absolute pathname,
and then forgetting to use it, so it was unable to find "~/rgb.txt"
and defaulted to a built-in table of colors.

Should be fixed now on emacs-23 and will be merged into the trunk
soon, I suppose.
