Update. After I connected once from my laptop, still running 3.3.6, to the
server running 4b4 the pcolor problem went away. It now does not happen
whether I connect from my PC running 4b4 or from my laptop running 3.3.6.
The server has been configured to treat all sessions as shared. Maybe
something the laptop client "told" the server sticked and now applies to
alle clients connecting.

I'll se if I can test some more when I have the time and the opportunity.
Like I wrote before it *is* our mailserver, not something to test with at
will. ;-)
