I still don't understand what's going on with rxvt.
When I modify or remove /etc/defaults/etc/X11/app-defaults/Rxvt, nothing
Correct. Because that is the *default* file (that's why it is underneath
/etc/defaults/). The actual file used at runtime is over in
On one hand, that makes sense--I'm not (knowingly) running X11.
On the other hand, it's a little strange that rxvt is still using the
given in that file. Is rxvt getting them from compiled-in values, or is it
getting them from somewhere else?
It's getting them from /etc/X11/app-defaults/Rxvt. rxvt parses the
X11/app-defaults file itself, and does not rely on the Xserver's 'xrdb'
(resource management) to do it.
(I also terminated all CygWin processes, started bash, and ran rxvt to see
if CygWin somehow was emulating xrdb's behavior (of reading the X11
other way, but there was still no difference.)
Because nothing (that matters) changed. /etc/X11/app-defaults/Rxvt was
still there, and rxvt itself read the contents.
In any case, that still leaves unanswered the question of what makes
between normally spaced black characters on a white background vs.
yellow on blue.
Hopefully my other message answered this question (and those that
followed which I've snipped out).
