Hi Axel,

I guess I'm a bit dumb. And I'm now drinking a beer, which probably 
doesn't help either :)

So, you're saying that the app is not displaying the correct color 
onscreen? Sorry, I still don't get it... I think the problem is that 
you and Stephan look from the app_server perspective with all knowledge 
of it's inner workings, while I am looking from the opposite direction: 
the drivers. I just see a black box not behaving as it should, I just 
know about the interfaces to the app and the driver, that's why I am 
trying to get a full sentence out of you guys just plain and simple 
telling me where the problem lies (English for dummies so to speak).

So: do you think I ask stupid questions, wasting your time? Just let me 
know and I'll shut up, and forget about testing Haiku again (for now): 
concentrating on the established versions of BeOS to just continue my 
'core business'. ;-)
