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.)
