I have found a "meanwhile" solution to this problem, but it does come at a price.

Konsole->Settings->Schema->Green Tint with Transparent MC

AND

Desktop (right click)->Configure Desktop->Background->Background->No PIcture


Pros: Konsole is now readable for Normal Text (Black on Green) and Inverse Text (Black on Grey)

Cons: Bland Desktop Background

--Rich
