I'm replying to your email address because I'm not subscribed to SLE
and hence cannot post to it.

Are you using KDE? If so, then I will hazard a guess that you have
the rpm gtk-qt-engine installed. If so, try uninstalling it. I had
the same problem with the GTK build of CVS Emacs under KDE, and
removing that rpm solved it. The price you pay is that you don't get
the KDE window styles with Emacs. But the colors work. (This issue
was reported to the CVS Emacs bug list some time ago, but to date
hasn't been fixed.)

If this solves (or rather, works around) your problem, feel free to
post it to the SLE mailing list, so that it might help others.
