Actually they are kept seperate.  If you look in ~/.xwpe/xwperc you will
find "[Color/Term]" and "[Color/X11]".  In earlier version I believe there
was a problem in that one version would load both color specs and the other
would load only one.  So if you saved with the second version the other
color spec could have anything.
