thank you for the minimal example. I could track this down to the
\psrotate macro from pstricks-add. This is used to rotate the optical
components (also used if the angle is zero).

The following example shows the same effect, the text after the
pspicture is black instead of blue:

\listfiles
\documentclass{report}
\begin{document}
\color{blue}
Some text before the picture.

\begin{pspicture}(-1,-1)(6.5,3)
\psrotate(0,0){30}{\psframe(0,0)(2,1)}
\end{pspicture}

Some text after the picture.
\end{document}
