If you press Ctrl + mouse button (1,2,3 or whatever) over an xterm, you can

when i do this (woody, using gnome with sawfish) control-click

vignette (top-to-bottom) and the text is white! very hard to

for the rest of my environment (desktop-click, for example) i
get black text and all is delightfully readable. but not for
xterm popup menus.

how do i change those specs?

Without reading lots of manuals, all i can suggest is trying the
same /etc/X11/app-defaults/XTerm as i have:
