Screenshot of 'xmgrace' showing font corruption for accelmethod "exa"

Description of problem:
After installing current "rawhide" on a system equipped with an ATI Radeon X800 video card, axis labels in 'xmgrace' exhibit a blue background.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use 'xmgrace' for plotting some data set.
Actual results:
Black axis labels are rendered on top of blue boxes whereas the global background color is white making labels essentially unreadable.

Expected results:
Black axis labels are rendered on a white background.

Additional info:
Enforcing use of acceleration architecture "xaa" allows to restore proper behaviour.
