Try using the ansi codes (like "\x1B[1;31m" for bold red) instead of the
easycolour codes. That should solve your problem, only users cannot switch
it on or off anymore. That should be reasonably easy to fix though.
So in your case it should be something like
\x1B[1;31m****/****H\x1B[0;0m \x1B[0;37m****/****M\x1B[0;0m
\x1B[0;36m****/****V\x1B[0;0m >

Look in color.c for more of these codes.
