My bad. Apparently there was no line like this present. So basically the
settings for xterm background color get loaded from somewhere else when
not using the Xsession session under gdm. Only question is where. I'll
look to /etc/X11/Session.d/ but I didn't find it in there earlier. Maybe
I overlooked it...
