Xterm won't accept changes to .Xdefaults

Hello! I use KDE3.0 on FreeBSD 5.0-RELEASE.
My xterm won't accept the changes I have made to ~/.Xdefaults, but my emacs
sure does. I /have/ run "$ xrdb ~/.Xdefaults", I even tried "$ xrdb -merge
~/.Xdefaults" even though I don't know what it does...
Now for the idiot thing (me being the idiot, make no mistake about it)
The strange thing is it all works if I run "$ xrdb ~/.Xdefaults" /after/ X
and KDE has started up. My new xterms are as black and grey as I want them,
without the above mentioned command, they're glaringly white. The next
X-session, I have to run the same command...the changes won't become
permanent. I haven't had this problem before with applications...
This *is* a real problem for me, because if there is too much luminiscence
from the screen my right eye will protest by giving me a headache (I have a
scar on my 'darned' retina, which makes it sensitive to light...)
Help is very welcome, and I will love you for ever more for it.
