How about using the --color=NUMBER command-line switch, does this
help in any way?  E.g., try with 8 as NUMBER.

I must say that what you are trying to do might simply be impossible
with Emacs, as Emacs uses frame-type specific methods to turn colors
on and off, so it needs to know what kind of frame is it dealing with.

IOW, you are trying to piggy-back on the Emacs display engine, so you
need to play by its rules.
