FWIW, I was able to get decent-looking colors again by tweaking
the color settings in .muttrc, but now none of the various
sets of color settings I found on the net (such as Sven's)
look anything like what they are supposed to look like.
As if the behavior of color settings generally, in any bash
window, had been altered in a persistent way.
Oh well, as long as I can work around it...
