Default X affecting console text color??


My console text has the default light gray color - until X is started.

When going from X to the console with Ctrl-Alt-F2, the console
foreground color has turned to dark gray, hardly readable on the black
Even after logging out of X, back into the console, the console text
remains dark gray.
Only after restarting the computer, the default light gray text color
has returned.

This phenomenon started 1 or 2 weeks ago, during a lenny upgrade
involving a large number of files that had 'xorg' in their names.

Anyone else having this?
How could X affect the default console text color?
Where is the default console foreground color determined anyway, and
could I at least correct it manually?
