But that selects all the black text in the guf, not just the one letter
I need to colour. That was why I had started with a hard-drawn selection
to isolate just the one letter.

OK, I did that and colour-to-alpha turned on, but what I selected it, first
it squared off the hand-drawn selection to include bits of other letters and
secondly, it had made up its own mind about what was background and foreground
so that I couldn't get at the black letter but only the white paper.
