The question was why are the colors different. I failed to find
an answer in any of the replies. After searching the rather large
changelog, I find in Patch #180 - 2003/10/12 - XFree86 188.8.131.52:
"use color resource setting from Debian package for xterm VT100
widget, since the choice of blues provides better contrast."
If the default color scheme was purposely changed, would not an
easier answer had simply been "the default color scheme has
changed; use Xdefaults to tailor"?
