It's just a $TERM issue by the looks of it.  If you set $TERM in any of 
your .cshrc scripts, or .profile, it's probably set to something 
different than what Konsole's using.  Try running `setenv TERM 
xterm-color` before running tmux and see if that fixes it.  Run `echo 
$TERM` just so you can know what it is set to.  You'll have to track 
down where it changes to prevent it in the future.
