	I'm not sure what you are asking here.  I went thru all the
default looks and added all the new relevant MyStyle additions in the
snapshot (ergo the name "snapshot").  There are both Font ad
Bac||ForeColor entries in EACH look that is in the snapshot.  Are yo sure
you are looking at the correctlook, these should overwrite those in
/usr/local/share/afterstep/looks/look.* .  Now obviously if you have moved
these, or are looking at them in another directory, they won't be correct.

	Frankly, I'm quite flabbergasted at this, because you observation 
is basically in error, sorry. :)
