Looks like konsole isn't interpreting the color codes.  However, it also looks 
like git doesn't use termcap/terminfo/etc. to determine the correct way to 
write colors for your terminal and just defaults to ANSI.

Do you get odd output from:
grep --color=always o <<< foo
or are the "o"s properly colored red?

So you have a /usr/share/terminfo/k/konsole-256color file?  If so, it might be 
better to use TERM="konsole-256color".

I never use 256 color mode, so I'm not clear on how that works.  However, what 
git is outputting look more like ANSI 16-color codes.

Does this work as you expect in other terminal applications (like rxvt or 
xterm or gnome-terminal) with the same settings for TERM?

Just to let you know, it works here (openSUSE 11.1) with Konsole 1.6.6 (KDE 
3.5.10) running git inside screen 4.00.02
