    But a long time ago Gerd said (while tracking down a
    color-reference-count-overflow bug in XFree triggered by Emacs):

Could you spell out for me how this relates to the issue?  I don't
know these aspects of X well enough to figure out the connection.
I don't even know enough to understand this:

    This suggestion won't work because Emacs (rightly so from my point of
    view) does not automatically switch to a private colormap when it
    runs out of colors.

What does it mean to say this "won't work"?  It was only meant to test
whether a certain X resource has a real effect.  It "works" if it
provides a valid answer to the question.  Are you saying that the test
won't proviude valid information about that question?
