FYI, this is what I get:

xterm: red on yellow
rxvt: red on yellow
eterm: red on lightbraun
gnome-terminal: red on lightbraun/orange

So translation of symbolic colornames to RGB values is not consistent
between terminals.

yellow is translated different if it is used as foreground color
than if it is used as background color.

mc -C directory=yellow,yellow has always a brighter tone as foreground
color in the terminals I have installed.

Just observations. I don't know how the terminals work internally, or
how to change the behaviour.
