Hi Ulf

actually i came to the same conclution as you as i tried to debug
dircolors.vim. Sadly i am not vim-brave enough to fix it but to me this also
seems the source of this bug.
I actually tried to set those color definitions to useful without
success so far.
That's the point were i asked for some help.

The thing with desert256 is, it calculates the colors on some metrecis.
So in conbination this is buggy.
