Unfortunately, your code is far from providing a working
example of the effect you mention.

If I extend it like this:





and compile with latex+dvips+distiller, then everything is
blue as expected. When I compile with pdflatex, then everything
on the first page is blue as expected, and on the second page
everything (including body) is black.

This is a problem ultimately caused by the fact that seminar's
output routine stems from the stoneage of LaTeX, when the
color package didn't exist.

Using the current development version of powersem (attached)
instead of seminar will cure this somewhat, because it defines
a patched output routine. But you have to leave out 
because they will overwrite powersem's changed output routine.
powersem loads these anyway before applying the patch.

As I said, for my example it's black. Could you post
a complete (minimal) test example?

> sometimes the rule in array are brown to

Are you sure this isn't a `trick of the light' or some
anti-aliasing effect? Did you look with maximal

If yes, please post a complete (minimal) test example.

These shouldn't have any influence here, unless
you're using dvips.

is loaded.

% There is a boolean register display (as defined in ifthen.sty) which is set by this
