gnome-settings-daemon now sets some color related X resources so
non-GNOME applications look more like GNOME applications.
You can change xterm's background color back to white by adding
to ~/.Xresources. (To enable the new setting instantly you can use
'xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources').

X resources are DISPLAY specific, it doesn't matter on which machine
the application runs.
(Look at /usr/share/control-center-2.0/xrdb/*.ad to see what resources
get changed by gnome-settings-daemon.)
