    i upgraded my laptop to the latest xsrc from the netbsd CVS and
it broke my xclock --- the colors in the clock are so dim i can hardly 
see them!

     i run xclock with the following resources:

XClock*analog:  on
XClock*background:      black
XClock*foreground:      cyan
XClock*geometry:        =100x100-1+1
XClock*hands:   green
XClock*highlight:       DarkGreen

    i've found that if i start xclock with "xclock -norender" things
are back to normal (i.e. the clock is easy to read once again, like
it was before my upgrade).

    is the new behavior of xclock really desirable?   i don't really
understand why it was changed, maybe someone can explain?
