On the 1st gen ibook2, the problem exists in fb mode. A quick try with
"fbset -depth x" with x>8 make the problem quite visible. 

It's like the pixel size is *2 on the screen (bigger letters and co).

And, if the 8 bit mode is usable in 2 colors, the color mapping is not
correct either... (Tryed in 8 bits with X or links -g)...

So, I think that the fb aty128 cannot work on external screen, at least
with the M3.
