Window color change when cygwin telnet to QNX

I am running cygwin on a Windows 2000 machine.  I have various default colors 
set up for my windows to help distinguish them.  While running a bash shell 
window, I telnet into a QNX machine.  After a few "ls" commands, and/or I 
run "less," the color of the window starts turning black where the text is not 
displayed, and after paging down further, the entire window eventually goes 
black.  The color of the window is immediately restored when I exit the QNX 
telnet session.

When I run telnet, the TERM variable changes to ansi, and changing it to cygwin 
does not retain full functionality of the window.

Does anyone know why this might be happening, and what I can do to be able to 
retain the default color of the window?
