The "Red Hat" icon displayed at the upper right of the login screen
displays red, then turns brown when the login prompt appears. Cosmetic

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.
Comment 3 Jim Phillips 2001-02-03 21:03:33 EST
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.
Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2001-02-03 21:52:46 EST
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?
