gnome-terminal uses bright colors for bold fonts. Is it possible to configure it to use the same color for bold fonts as for normal fonts. Also, I do need bright colors somewhere else, so changing the color palette probably wouldn't help.

Open your gnome-terminal and open the "Profile Preferences": Edit -> Profile Preferences

Go to the Colors tab and select the Same as text color checkbox on the Text Color option.

Take a look at my screenshot showing the "Profile Preferences" dialog:
