| I seem to recall it was a libXg problem. Someone explained that part of

Yes, exactly.  The bug was, libXg only does power-of-two depths, so 24
bits doesn't work.  Annoyingly, most X servers don't let you ask for
more than one depth visual, which would be the obvious workaround for
something like sam.
