But -depth 8 gives you PseudoColor, and I think always has. So it
sounds like the opposite, that your applications need DirectColor?

I was completely convinced we were using true colour for 8 bpp, so I
had a look at the code. And apparently my memory is hazier than I

that will change in my cleanup as well then.
