You are doing something wrong, that does not happens with the default
configuration. I think you have some color lines in your ~/.muttrc.
I had to experiment a long time to have settings which works fine both
in xterms and console, and I'm not going to change the default Muttrc
without a very good reason.

Seen. My xterms are *very* different, even with a white background.
