first a question, You said you don't see this when using cmd.exe so with 
what terminals do you see the problem?

Considering what you write about %colors NoColor in ipythonrc not 
working it sounds like we have problems both with ipython (sending color 
escapes when its not supposed to) and with pyreadline (not parsing the 
escapes properly). Does the other functionality of pyreadline work, 
like: history, tab completion, clipboard paste?

You could try running pyreadline from svn, there have been some work on 
the color handling since the last release. If you are unable to get it 
from svn I could make a zip file of the latest version and mail you
