Yes, I get the default background color. 

I wrote a small interactive function containing the command
   (set-background-color "DarkSlateGray")
And I execute it with a shortcut right after emacs is launched. And it
works (i.e. the background color is DarkSlateGray).

I think it is, since the background is changed to that specific color
during half a second during the loading jsut before the background
switches back to white. Netscape is not running, there is only a shell
(which is unlikely to deplete my color palette).

I am gonna try.

Thank you,
