Strangely, I am using MATE terminal 1.20 and now it is not working. I
have a profile called Black and White. I change the colour profile
preferences to the black and white scheme, but when I launch emacs -nw,
it displays blue underlined text in places. And when I go back and look
at the colour preferences in MATE it has gone back to custom.
