You need to run your XServer in either 8-bit or 24-bit
(what I recommend) mode. Not the 16-bit mode you are
probably in now. :-)

If any of you Linux-types want to write the definitive
answer to this question, I'll make every effort to save it
in a place where I can find it. (I'll even add it to
my web page, so we don't have to answer this question
any more. :-)
