I am currently traveling and therefore I don't have permanent internet
access. Yes there was a color related problem which caused
to malfunction. I have since pushed a fix for this particular issue
to the git repository. When I launch dvtm with that patch applied within
a 256 color aware terminal and TERM set acordingly, for example:

  TERM=xterm-256color dvtm

It seems to work. However the color mappings seem a bit strange afterwards
which means after executing the colors don't look the way they
should (noticed with mutt/vim in my case). Haven't yet had time to look
into it though... Patches welcome ;-)

A clearly reproducable testcase for your problem would be nice (now that seems to work).
