Thanks for the follow-up.
I've just tried to reproduce the problem using the latest
version of ls, invoked from a linux vt, then xterm, aterm and rxvt
windows.  Each time, I did this in an empty directory:

  seq 100|xargs touch; touch z.foo
  env LS_COLORS='*.foo=0;31;42' ls -l --color

All I see on the last line is a red "z.foo" on a green background,
and then the usual prompt.

If you can still demonstrate the problem using coreutils-7.0,
please try to provide enough details so others can reproduce it.
