higher depths they either generate fatal colormap errors or just
generate screwed-up and non-usable colors. We only have binaries of
the server apps, so have to work with them as they are.
However, on other occasions, the students want the linux screens set
in the highest color depth possible (eg when using GIMP, StarOffice,
