I'm not not even good at graphics, but man X says
is a valid color specification, but
#191919 is equivalent to #190019001900 not #191919191919

So if the man page is correct wrt to the implementation there probably 
is a bug in mogrify.

Looking at /usr/share/lintian/checks/menu-format, it will reduce
#rr00gg00bb00 to #rrggbb for matching so lintian seems OK here.
