Ok, I've removed the setting of antialias. A revised patch will be
forthcoming when we settle on the use of the DIB (unless you want it

I'm not sure we can get around poking in the DIB.  The problem is that
we are working with a bitmap which is at a different colour depth in X
and Windows.  X is operating with a 24(or whatever) bit bitmap, while
the windows equivilent DIB is running at 8 bit.  Lower down, we render
in the full 24 bit happyness, but when it gets converted back to the 8
bit palette for windows, we loose all of the pixels which were
antialiased because they can not be matched against known palette
values.  That's why we need to check the depth of the DIB at this
level as opposed to lower down where we only ever get to see what X
thinks the depth is.
