Well, 'sometimes' might have been a better word. I don't think it explains the
problem either, just mentioned it for completeness' sake.

Now I'm using kernel 3.0, compiz runs on mesa 7.10.3, and I start games with
mesa from git. The problem still exists.

The interesting thing is that palettes also seem to be changing: the border
lines of areas in Qt windows change their colors (mostly into purple or green),
the names in the chat window change colors in kopete, and the colors in
gnome-terminal become different (all text become the same color).
