APA> Hi Joachim, use [Set] to activate a change in the active XEmacs

No, [Set] does definitively _not_ update that specific change in the
active XEmacs session. That's what I wrote above, I tried [Set]ting
the toolbar face background before I asked on xemacs-beta. (That this
obvious solution did not work actually triggered my email.)
Only when I wanted to create an minimal error case for Stephen I
discovered that [Save] and restarting XEmacs works. As Stephen
confirmed, this is not easy to change, as one seems to need full
re-initialization and cache-invalidation of toolbar buttons for [Set]
to work. Maybe one should mention that in the doc string of face
toolbar, as long as it doesn't work?
