Please use M-x report-emacs-bug, you still have not given us all info.
The #141414 instead of #151515 simply isn't happening here. I checked all pixels, there are only #151515.

If you have another combination of colors, use that.
And describe each step clearly, starting from emacs -Q.

I reproduced it now with Emacs It's the same with emacs -Q,
it does not change when changing the gtk+ theme, the one external
thing I thought might maybe influence this. I am just running a new
emacs session, using customize-face on the "default" face, setting
background to #151515, foreground to #ffffff, and opening a file where
some lines are empty and some lines have a bunch of tabs (I mean the
"hard" tab character, not just a bunch of spaces) and some text in
them. The difference is background might not be easily noticable but
it is there. It's similar for other dark background, the tabs+text
lines get different background than empty lines.

- Open up current bzr emacs --no-init, without any .Xresources, using

- Customize default face to background #151515

- Open a new text file

- Insert a few empty lines

- Insert a few lines starting with a few tabs and some text

- The lines without text get a #141414 background, only the lines with
text get #151515, on a good display there are noticeable "stripes"

Pretty strange...

I can't reproduce this.  Can you please include the information from
report-emacs-bug?  You don't mention the Emacs version.
Also, does this happen with -Q?
#151515 is pretty dark, so are you using the default foreground black?
Texts are almost unreadable this way.  So I suspect you are not running
vanilla Emacs, but have some customizations.
