Color in FC5/X11R7



Ive only had a few minutes to play with FC5, but one of the things Ive noticed
is that while COLOR seems fine if Im running GNOME, if I bring up TWM
suddenly programs dont seem to be able to find colors.

my .xinitrc file (long before it mentions 'twm' ) tries to set the background 
to grey
with 
        xsetroot -solid grey50

and I get the error message that grey50 is not understood.  Similarly, the 
xterm
is all black and white.

I don't see any comments relevant to this in the FC5 Release notes (and would
expect programs provided like xterm and xsetroot to understand any new 
conventions)

Is there something new that an X11 startup script has to do to get COLOR s to 
work?
Some new argument on the X11 startup itself?

Sorry, just havent had the time to dig this out myself.
