I have compiled emacs-23.1 from on both Fedora 7 and
Fedora 12.  In the .emacs file, I try to set a different background
color for the initial frame versus the default one.  When emacs is
started in either version, the initial frame geometry is as specified,
but the color is that of the default frame.  Any new frames created
follow the default list.

This the snippet from the .emacs file:

;; Setup the default behavior of and display frame created
(setq default-frame-alist
      '((width . 80)(height . 50)
       (top . 15) (left . 560)
       (background-color . "Yellow1")
       (foreground-color . "Black")
       (font . "-*-courier-medium-r-*-*-*-100-*-*-m-*-*-*")

;; Setup the initial display to be a little differnt
(setq initial-frame-alist
      '((width . 80)(height . 50)
       (top . 10) (left . 15)
       (background-color . "DarkSeaGreen1")
       (foreground-color . "Black")
       (font . "-*-courier-medium-r-*-*-*-100-*-*-m-*-*-*")

I have seen some discussion of this problem as far back as version 22.
 Has the issue been fixed?
