fixed-in: 1e726c94e8d53c929a568a74fd54f71148550696 ff53c6716afb31a4ac3732238aa793d3d814530a (0.76)

In PuTTY 0.75, reconfiguring the RGB values of terminal colours mid-session (from the Change Settings dialog box) doesn't have any immediate effect, unlike previous versions.

(The reconfigured colours would belatedly take effect if the palette was subsequently reset, for instance by the escape sequence ESC ] R.)

After this fix, configured colour changes will take effect immediately, unless the palette has been overridden by an escape sequence from the server like ESC ] P nrrggbb; any server overrides will remain in effect until the palette is reset. This is a deliberate change from pre-0.75 behaviour.
