This is one of the stranger things I've seen. Each time I restart ghostview I get a different
color font! There is no pattern to it, and no, it's not colormap flashing. I'm running 24-bit
depth. Try running ghostview a few times and you'll see. I don't know if this happens
on x86 but it's worth looking into there as well.

Please disregard this...I noticed when I checked ghostview on a different Alpha box it wasn't
displaying the different colored fonts. I reasoned it might be a problem with the Matrox
Mystique so I went back to that machine to test. ghostview no longer exhibited this problem.
Cosmic rays? Hmmm...I can't reproduce it anymore so I'm marking this bug as NOTABUG.
