Under Redhat I'm running Emacs 21.2.  I'm used to running Emacs 21.2.  I
don't have to be editing a file at all, just trying to use the built in
help system.  Actually, it is primarily the help system that is causing
the problems.

I already have global-font-lock-mode off.  If I turn it on even more

Yes!  Those are the weird colors that appear.  They are set to the
"default", which is what I like them set too.  On everything but redhat,
the default is what I want.  Even if I compile my own emacs, they appear
when I run it on a redhat box.
