Just to be more specific about what he means by "screwed", here's how it goes when this happens to me. I use "transparent, dark background" as my settings. When this happens, the colours seem to go to white-on-white; the background looks normal initially, but whenever I type something I get a row of white rectangles instead of any text.

When it's in that state, it also fails to refresh itself properly; any windows that were ever on top of the konsole end up staying there. I'll attach several screenshots of konsoles in this state; the error message at the start is an unrelated weirdness on my system. The third screenshot shows the "white boxes" font problem most clearly; I typed "whoami". The other two shots show what happens when you start moving windows over the messed-up konsole.

This usually resolves itself eventually if I keep trying, or set the scheme to "white on black" and then back again.
