I've retested paintbrush on the 8-but display and I see no difference.

The reasons are:

1) I invested time into testing XOR operations on Windows 2000 and found
no magic interpretation for the black pen.  It's invisible in Windows.

2) DrawFocusRect() is Wine uses this hack accidentally.  COLOR_WINDOWTEXT
