Thanks for the config file and I have reproduced the problem.

There were some changes made to how the ; character is interpreted
starting in 6.39.  The reason for this change was the addition of
the ability to send a string to an interfaced radio.  All of the 
commands that would be sent to a Kenwood radio require a semi-colon.
Initially, this created a bug, because anything after a semi-colon
in the config file was ignored.

The fix to your problem is to put at least two spaces in front of
any semi-colon you want to designate a comment with.  Or, you can
eliminate the space if it the semi-colon is at the start of the line.

This will restore the colors to the way they appeared before.
