Note that emacs explicitly knows about this issue and maintains separate
dark-background defaults for many faces, so any default face that's not
readable on a dark background is a bug (of course in some cases it's
just a bad decision), so please report if you can.

If you're using emacs in a terminal, then it's possible that emacs is
confused about what sort of background it has (as there's no way to
query the terminal for this info, emacs has to guess), and is using the
wrong set of default faces; you can customize `frame-background-mode' to
force the issue.

Occam's razor split hairs so well, I bought the whole argument!
