Platinum palette weirdness
I've finally managed to find a Mac <> VGA adaptor. After fiddling with the DIP
switches I've finally managed to get this rather nice Belinea monitor running
at 1152x870 in 8-bit mode.
Unfortunately, the palette is gibberish under X. Everything appears in shades
of yellow. If I force xv to do perfect-colours, then the palette doesn't
change when I move the mouse pointer into the window; so I suspect that
something's ignoring all palette-change commands.
This is a Mac 8200/120, Platinum chipset, BootX with no video driver,
