Package: xterm
Version: 4.2.1-3

I have defined background color and foreground color of xterm in my

xterm*vt100.background:         black
xterm*vt100.foreground:         orange

After that I can not override them with command line flags. For example
if I give this command, I still have orange text on black:

xterm -ls -fg 'gray84' -bg '#00003c' -cr 'green' \
-fn '-jmk-neep alt-medium-r-normal-*-24-240-*-*-c-*-iso8859-15' &
