Thanks for your response.
I tried your suggestion, entering "--profile Default" in Terminal options,
but it seemed to have no effect.
My Default profile is black on light yellow.

As I mentioned I have no problems on other laptops.
(I'm in Italy at the moment, and only have this laptop.)
It's not a serious problem, as I can get the desired effect
by opening a konsole window and typing in the command "ssh -Y helen-vpn".

But I'm puzzled as to what is controlling the terminal settings.

I don't think it is just a konsole problem
as the window lacks the usual File-Edit-View heading.
