I thought I'd see how this old program works with Wine, and it turns out that
most of the interface is the wrong colors. The program's messages are
unreadable because the black text appears on a black background, and the rest
of the interface is mostly red and black. However, it displays correctly if
Xephyr is used to run the program at 8-bit color depth. I tried it in an older
version and found that this is a regression:

Both the trial and retail version are affected. I'll attach good and bad
screenshots of the program shortly.

There are other open regressions created by this commit - bug 20565 and bug
21067 - but I don't know whether this is exactly the same problem as one of
those or not.
