there is no problem in the cvs files :

http://latex-beamer.cvs.sourceforge.net/latex-beamer/latex-beamer/
base/beamerbaseboxes.sty?view=annotate
you have : 120 : 	tantau 	1.29 	 \setbox\bmb at colorbox=\hbox
{{\pgfpicturetrue\pgfsetcolor{lower.bg}}}%
but you need to wait a new version if you don't want to use CVS !

Tantau makes a lots of changes in the cvs for beamer and tikz
but it prefers to do few versions, only when the changes are important.
If you want to be up to date, it is necessary to supervise the files
using CVS!

The problem with the colors and the boxes
was discussed on LPDFtex list between Oberdiek and Tantau

The only comment of  Heiko Oberdiek is :
###############################
\color issues \aftergroup\reset at color, thus a
\reset at color is executed outside the \hbox of the
\setbox command.
I don't think, this is a good place
for \reset at color. However I don't understand the purpose
of the code with \bmb at colorbox.
