On the UTF-8 live CD, the following problem has been noticed by Justin 
while running irssi in xterm:

(12:49:38) ***patrakov has to convert the utf8 branch to the new 
makefile structure
(12:51:16) lfs-livecd: BTW, is it normal in irssi for "/me"'s to have no 
(12:51:42) lfs-livecd: I only saw "has to convert the utf8...", no 
"Patrakov" before it.
(12:52:55) ***Justin is testing /me's
(12:53:17) ***Justin is in xchat
(12:53:29) patrakov: well?
(12:53:30) lfs-livecd: 01:52  * Justin is in xchat
(12:53:39) Justin: Hmm
(12:53:50) Justin: A copy/paste shows "Justin"
(12:53:59) Justin: Unless it is white...
(12:54:09) patrakov: "white on white" issue.
(12:54:28) Justin: Yes, must be it.

Probably that also applies to the normal 6.1 CD. To avoid this, we have 
to either reconfigure xterm to use black background, or to change irssi 
color scheme. Which is the preferred variant?
