FWIW, I see the same thing in some circumstances.
Setting the *default* face from Lisp using `set-face-property' causes
this problem to show up. New frames suddenly don't quite work.
The properties are set as:
(defun make-face-from-spec (face spec)
"Construct the named face if it does not already exist, and set
the given specifier list into the object."
(set-face-property face (car x) (cadr x)
'global '(daniel) 'remove-tag-set-prepend))))
;; Work as a delta to the default face.
(copy-face 'default face)
;; Map across the font description.
(mapc fn spec)))
This then gets fed a face symbol and a list of property cons cells.
Earlier in the file, I also do (define-specifier-tag 'daniel).
If I set the default face this way, the issue of color changing comes
up. If I /don't/ set default here, it works correctly.
Setting the default face from X resources seems to work correctly.
Our quarrel with the world is an echo of the
endless quarrel proceeding within us.
