128mb is plenty for DSL. I think it's more likely that the package hasn't been updated since the x terminal was changed to light on dark as default. The myDSL menu command for python might be "rxvt -rv", or maybe "-fg black", which would give you black text on the dark background.
There are a few ways around this...
You could edit the menu item to read "aterm -e /path/to/python".
You could duplicate the aterm lines in .Xdefaults and make them apply to rxvt (or xterm?).
You could open a terminal and use the python command directly, rather than using the menu. I think the command is "/opt/python/bin/python", but you might need to refer to the mydsl menu (at the top of .fluxbox/menu) to find the actual command.
