update since the bug started
Since the last upgrade, the Konsole tab bar doesn't show "highlighted" text correctly. In the past it used to change the color of the text if something changed in a tab.
After this upgrade the text remains of the color that it starts with.
This happens on Arch Linux since 11 December, when I upgraded multiple dependencies of console. The log of the upgrade is attached.
I guess what you are seeing is the reverse: Tabs change color once, but never reset back when activated. See bug 396689.
Probably... I made a test and opened a new tab where i entered the sleep command. The tab does indeed change it's color. However it doesn't change it back how it's supposed to.
I was under the impression that the tab color in konsole doesn't ever change any more...
