The circles are not black! They have the color of the
current active color, which normally is black. But if
you switch to green before inserting the figure, then
the color is green.

Solutions:

* If you want them to be black, switch the textcolor to
black just before inserting the figure: \color{black}

* Or insert the line
0 setgray
just after the comments in ex_plan-color-new.1 and
ex_plan-color-new.2.

Sorry, I don't know how to do it with xfig.
