vga16 frame buffer eats colour on bootup.

I don't know much about this except it don't work. :)
The new 2.2.11 kernel includes a new 16 colour frame buffer
for the console that among other niceness gives a boot logo
to non-vesa2 compliant cards. But at boot time it eats the
colours of the OK/WARNING/FAILURE messages from the init
scripts. Green comes out white - yellow and red come out
Actually even afer we've settled into a runlevel and have
logged into a VT the colours are still strange. For insance
an "ls --color" shows the same brownish non-colours.
I don't think it can be anything serious becuase if I run
"reset" it all comes good. *Shurg*
Trivial bug - just a bit annoying. Now I have to choose
which prettiness I like most. :)
