Works fine for me under XFCE on Debian testing, with 24.4 from unstable.

Hi.

Debian has just upgraded Emacs 24.3 to 24.4 and one thing stopped
working: It seems that Emacs 24.4 does not respect all the X resources
that I used to specify (for many, many, many years) in my .Xresources
file.

Going back to 24.3 makes the configuration work again. Going forward to
24.4 makes it stop. Tested multiple times just in case I was going nuts.

In particular, I set the geometry, foreground and background colors with
the following:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Emacs*cursorColor:		red
Emacs*geometry:			100x45
Emacs*Background:		#002540
Emacs*Foreground:		azure3
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Is this a known problem? Is there any extra information needed to solve
this potential regression?


Thanks in advance for any help,
