AFAICT, it makes no difference.  At 8 bpp, with the pointer on the wine
desktop, the entire X display is black & white.  With the pointer off
the desktop, it still looks like it is run with a VGA16 server, well,
maybe VGA32, if there were such a thing.  I might have missed a patch in
that flurry of msvcrt patches, but I don't think so.  Maybe we barked up
the wrong tree?  At 16 bpp, all is well.  I tried
"CopyDefaultColors" = "256", but it didn't seem to make any difference.
