Question [FIXED] Emacs changes the term colors after quitting

Ok. So I've finally compiled the latest version of GNU emacs on Solaris 5.8.
I've set putty up so that it sets TERM=xtermc. emacs now has syntax highlighting. The problem is, whenever I quit emacs, it changes the screen colors. The background is now the same as the color of the minibuffer. It won't change until I invoke vim or any other app that changes the background color. Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks.
