Indeed: fix in hand, just have to upload to CTAN.

For the present


\edef\GPT at pagecolortrue{\global\unexpanded\expandafter{\GPT at pagecolortrue}}

\edef\GPT at pagecolorfalse{\global\unexpanded\expandafter{\GPT at pagecolorfalse}}

will sort the issue.

I'd expect this to be fixed with a couple of days more widely.
