1. invalid Colormap error

I'm having a problem opening an app in X Window. Each time I try to open
it as the normal user, I get the following error message:

X Error of failed request: BadColor (invalid Colormap parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request: 84 (X_AllocColor)
  Resource id in failed request: 0x0
  Serial number of failed request: 70
  Current serial number in output stream: 70

This is a Red Hat 7.3 box.

I've tried several things to resolve this issue. First, I used xhost +. Then, I
changed from 24-bit color to 16 and back. Finally, given that the box was
running XFree86 4.0.3, I upgraded to 4.3.0. Still no luck.

Again, I can run this app as the root user - just not as the normal user.

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.
