How are your colors set? I see 'grep --color=yes <args> | od -c' outputting '\e[00m' which is correct (although in my experience the extra '0' is redundant) for 'clear formatting'. Do you see this as well? If so, either your terminal emulator is broken or you are using a non-standard way of setting your default color(*). If not, what output /do/ you get ('\e[00;37,'?), and what version of grep are you using?

Are you on *nix or Windows?

(* The correct way is to tell your term-emu to make 'normal text' green. E.g. using '\e[32m' at the end of your prompt is broken.)
