I now remember the issue: GNU screen. As you'll see in the attached screenshot, with an xterm on the left using GNU screen and on the right a "native" xterm, the colors are quite different. Also top-right is sbopkg, and while it's legible it is not so legible as the standard (blaring) ANSI colors.
I have 256-color xterm support specifically noted in my .screenrc, and played with all sorts of terminfo options to get screen to play nicely. I couldn't get it worked out. I use screen often (probably too much), typically from PuTTY at work, so this is a real consideration. Also, not in the screenshot is irssi, which will require some theme reworking to be useful. Using Solarized with irssi's default color scheme, there are no highlights to differentiate nicks and discussion. But that's not precisely an indictment of Solarized.
I may check into tmux on the chance that it plays more nicely with colorschemes. I assume, as it's fairly popular, you or someone else here uses GNU screen at least infrequently. How have you adapted it with Solarized, if at all?
A late thread bump, I know, but the main Solarized project now has a configuration file for the Xfce4 terminal that doesn't mess up sbopkg.
I used to really love KDE (and I still do) it's just that I wanted to try something else and have since become hooked on Fluxbox. The fact that it is ready the second I hit enter at login is nice. Also...tabbing, really awesome.
