\usecolortheme{orchid}% otherwise "First" would vanish (backgroundcolor?)




Some obscurity I found in latex/base/beamerbaseboxes.sty:
    \setbox\bmb at colorbox=\hbox{\color{lower.bg}}

\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.
