From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.0-0.99.11 i586)
The "Red Hat" icon displayed at the upper right of the login screen
displays red, then turns brown when the login prompt appears. Cosmetic
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Using a PC w/ 1 meg of video memory
2.8 bit display, highest resolution [1024/1280?]
3.bring up system and view login screen. And/or logout & see it again.
Actual Results: The red hat turns brown.
Expected Results: The red hat stays red?
Does the hat turn red again if you move the mouse pointer outside the login
window? I didn't think GTK would install a private cmap but I guess it might.
Owen will probably know immediately what's up.
FWIW, I have recently seen this same behavior on 7.0, installing 7.0
for a friend. I don't know the collection of hardware in that
computer, but it's an older (early or mid 90's video card) with only
2 or 3 Meg of video memory.
I also experience this. I usually just ignore it since I've been using a 1MB
video card for years and have gotten used to palette switching as a normal
(although annoying) thing in X.
It _is_ palette-switching, though, right? i.e. if you move outside the login
window you get the proper color for the Red Hat back?
