Have you customized default-frame-alist and initial-frame-alist? Sounds
like you may be setting the modeline face in one and not other other. 

Note that I don't set these variables i.e. they are at their default and
have heavily customized faces, running under emacs 23.3 and emacs
24.0.50 and I don't see this problem, so I suspect it is something in
your .emacs file or one of the packages you load. 

I would sugest moving your .emacs to something like emacs-backup and
then start emacs with clean defaults, customize the mode-line using M-x
cusotmize-face and see if the problem persists when you create new
frames. If it doesn't, then you know it is something in your setup. If
it still persists, you will have a simple recipe to use for logging a
bug report. 

BTW, check you don't have something in your .Xresources that may be
changing face colours.
