I was looking at this issue and, think that I'm not going to fix it.

I cannot change user's PS1 - that would be unfair.. 
I also cannot tweak colors - escape sequences are well-defined and expected to work as specified..

I can propose users to set PS1 in their .bashrc to other value. And this could be done conditionally depending on NBMAGIC env variable presence:

# Make prompt readable on a while bg (for NB)
if [ -n "${NBMAGIC}" ] ; then
   export PS1="\[\e]0;\w\a\]\n\[\e[34m\]\u@\h \[\e[35m\]\w\[\e[0m\]\n\$ "

Not sure if it is a good idea to automate this bashrc modification from within the IDE...

I'm open for other ideas. Please re-open the issue with new suggestions.
