[Mono-dev] XBuild colors

I am using a bash script to make xbuild easier to use (it handles passing all the command line arguments). At the top of the script I have the following:
# Using different colors just to prove a point
When I run xbuild I definitely see errors and events change colors. But warnings are always the console's foreground color. This happens in both gnome-terminal and xterm.
Hmmm. When I create a scratch program to test my claim I see that the warnings are being colored. I can't imagine the difference between a simple program and the production scripts. Admittedly, we have build files that invoke other build files, shell scripts invoking shell scripts, and all of that mixed and matched. However, I placed the XBUILD_COLORS environment variable in every shell script used just to ensure that the value exists and is set. Again, I can see errors and events being colored but warnings are the console's foreground color.
I'll have to experiment more at some point (it's not high priority, but I do like using colors to my advantage).

What are you setting XBUILD_COLORS to? It works for me (2.6.7 on opensuse 11.2).
What terminal are you trying this in?
