Is someone working on that?  Likely it will be fixed in 2.4?

Exactly the symptom I am seeing.

Curiously enough, glx works just fine in 16bpp (bzflag is *snappy!*), however, selecting 16bpp in X makes my desktop a hallucinogenic swirl of many colors (mostly pink and green) rather than the mild blue nebula it's supposed to be. Is this a known issue too? I'd really like it if my 3D were both fast *and* correct :)
