Lester is probably right about the source of the colors. We had some docs that 
contained 256-color PNGs, and those added hundreds of "RGB x, y, z" colors. 

We replaced the graphics with 24-bit ("true color") PNGs, and then ran a script 
to delete the RGB colors, but they wouldn't go away. What got rid of them was a 
"MIF wash" (save FM file as MIF, open that, and save back to FM).
