This is probably caused by some changes in the color handling that were 
not tested properly (personally I don't use anything but the standard 
colors so I have not seen this). Perhaps Walter's proposed patch will 
fix this. Anyway, I can't look at this today and tomorrow I'm leaving 
for a conference and will not be back until 26th june. I have added this 
problem as a ticket to the bugtracker and will revisit this when I return.
