Looking at the definition of table and table* in /usr/local/teTeX/ 
share/texmf.tetex/tex/latex/base/article.cls, it seems the only  
difference is that table uses \@float (for single-column pages) and  
table* uses \@dblfloat (for two-column pages). \@float and \@dblfloat  
are defined in /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/tex/latex/base/ 
latex.ltx, where they seem to use fairly low-level LaTeX page-layout  
code; both rely eventually on \@xfloat, but \@float calls it directly  
while \@dblfloat mixes it with page-dimension setting code. I imagine  
some of these page-setting instructions break the scope of the color  
declarations. But it's beyond my LaTeX skills to determine exactly  
what's going on.
