syntax coloring for package function

Some names in the Mathematica 7 (and 6) package Combinatorica shadow System` names. One such is Star. Hence after loading Combinatorica, when you type, e.g., Star[5] in an input cell, the 'Star' is colored red - the red used to indicate "Shadowing in multiple contexts". Is there some way to avoid that, WITHOUT unchecking the "Shadowing in multiple contexts" syntax coloring (from the Edit > Preferences dialog, e.g.) and WITHOUT editing the Combinatorica package itself. (I'm afraid that when my students see the red, they will be confused, thinking that they typed the wrong thing.) -- Murray Eisenberg murray at math.umass.edu Mathematics & Statistics Dept.
