And just in case someone will care about this -- it turned out that
the problem goes away if I "xrdb -load .Xdefault" after the Gnome
session starts.  To clarify: my .Xdefaults does not touch the modeline
etc.  (And even if it does, the two expressions should set the colors
regardless of my .Xdefaults.)
