[pdftex] problem with color.sty in pdflatex

I think there is a bug in color.sty, although I hardly dare say so,
because I would expect that the problem would have come up much earlier.
My impression is that when a page ends with a color, it will also start
with that color. This is illustrated by the following:
I'm supposed to be black, because no color was set until now;
after me, the color is set to red.
I'm red, but after me the color is set to green,
followed by a newpage, so this page ends in green.
As a result, my black brother on top of this page has turned green.
I'm supposed to be green; after me comes blue,
followed by a newpage, so this page ends in blue.
As a result, my color is actually blue.
I'm blue and after me, the color stays so, happily,
because if after me the color would become white,
I would have been invisible.
A similar source in ConTeXt has no problems.
Do I make a mistake in my source?
Or is this really a bug?
