Package: zgv
Version: 5.9-2
Severity: normal

With svgalib configured to use a framebuffer,
chipset FBDEV
in /etc/vga/libvga.cfg, about half the time zgv renders
the image with 'solarized'/psychedelic colors that are
totally unrealistic.
This seems to be corrected with the -j/--force-viewer-8bit
switch, or setting in /etc/zgv.conf.

If this is expected behaviour, it needs to be better documented.
(I spent a year having to use fbi till I found this out.)
If it is not, then it is a definite bug in the software.

When playing animated .gif's, things are initially ok,
but then it soon flips into the solarized mode.
This is not to critical to me personally 
(I can use mplayer on these files if needed), 
but something is wrong.

Thanks so much!
