I'm unable to change the font size or the background color in the
locator box (the place that says 295 x 117 ) using X resources.  I typed

strings `which gv` | grep -i font > out

then edited ALL the entries in "out" changing the font size to 180
instead of 120, and finally typed

xrdb -merge out  (or -load)

Now gv shows the information at the top (date, filename etc) with
the larger font, but the locator information remains resolutely tiny.

I also tried to change to white the background color in the locator box
(which, perversely, is dark gray), by editing the line

GV*locator*background:                  gray65

Again, no change in behavior.
What am I doing wrong?

Try putting the resource entries in ~/.gv. Don't know why it doesn't take them from the X resource database.
