I'm Using Win7. When I update nodejs to version v0.10.4, font color in the node interactive shell is messed up. I set the font color to rgb(200,200,200) and background color to black, but when I type code, say

process [Enter]

the font color is set to rgb(20,20,20) which I can hardly seen.

Is it a bug of nodejs or something goes wrong?

FYI: I once installed ansicon. But removed before update nodejs.
