Hardware cursor and console colours resetting when starting mutt

In the (framebuffer) console I've used the standard escape codes to
set a small 1/3 block cursor to make it more visible, and softened
the colours to not be so stark.  They were a bit of a headache
before, and the normal cursor is very hard to see. 

Unfortunately, when I start mutt everything resets back to the
defaults.  I only see a couple of settings regarding the cursor, but
they don't seem to help.  I've tried running with a -F /dev/null so
it doesn't seem to be something in my config.  Is there any way of
avoiding this?

In screen it's not so bad, but the cursor resets even just switching
to the window where mutt is running.  The colours remain as they were

The cursor code I use is:

printf '\e[?3c'

Any ideas?


In Ohio, if you ignore an orator on Decoration day to such an extent as
to publicly play croquet or pitch horseshoes within one mile of the
speaker's stand, you can be fined $25.00.
