color_f(const ex&, const ex&, const ex&) returns an indexed object, so
all those results are correct.

You might try something like this:

// This hack works for me (TM)

class su3f_visitor_t : public visitor, public indexed::visitor
	lst res;
	su3f_visitor_t() { }
	inline lst get_result() const { return res; }
	inline void visit(const indexed &i)
		if (is_a<su3f>(i.op(0)))

// look for color_f  in expression e

su3f_visitor_t su3f_v;
lst color_lst = su3f_v.get_result();

// do whatever you need

Best regards,
