This bug isn't just about obsolete code.  It's about obsolete code which has never been part of official GRUB.  Please upgrade.

To clarify what adrian15 has stated, the order of background and foreground relative to splashimage is important.

In order for the foreground and background colors to take effect with a splashimage they must follow splashimage in the config file.

i.e.:
...
splashimage=(hd0,0)/boot/grub/images/foo.xpm.gz
background 000000
foreground ff0000
...

This will display foo.xpm.gz and use red as the foreground color with black as the background color.

Non-standard grub such as the one from Ubuntu is not supported officially by Grub.

However I am going to help you. The color command when having a background image does not work as you have seen.

Use the following commands instead:

background RRGGBB
foreground RRGGBB

Splashimage support is added by Debian/Ubuntu.

I would close this, but I can't see how to in Savannah.

In Ubuntu, the default GRUB configuration has a splashimage of a mainly black XPM image and no color setting.

Using this configuration, the currently selected item shows only a white cursor at the end of the line, rather than the entire line in inverse video.

Setting "color white/black black/white" also fails to use inverse video when a splashimage is enabled.
