What code are you thinking of?  The toolbar only prefers PBM on mono,
but the idea of the PBMs is principally that (like XBM) they work in
an Emacs without XPM support.  [PBM is more efficient than XBM, though
that's probably only significant for things like gnus.pbm, which is
~40k (?) smaller than the XBM version.]

I don't understand.  They're drawn with the `1' values in the frame's
foreground colour for me.  Isn't that right?

You could test with Xnest or Xvnc/xvncviewer using `-class mono'.
