MGA on PowerPC64 color issues

I was using xorg-server-1.3 with xf86-video-mga- on my IBM RS/6000 
(PPC64, i.e. 64bit kernel+userland) with success. DRI 'broke' the colors, so 
I didn't enable it.

I have updated to xorg-server-1.4 with xf86-video-mga-1.4.7 and now the colors 
are broken with DRI disabled and with DRI enabled.

What do I mean with broken colors? Well.. look yourself: [1]. And this is how 
it should look like (a screenshot done with ksnapshot): [2].

This is a GXT135, which is a re-branded Matrox  G400/G450. lspci shows this:

0001:41:00.0 VGA compatible controller: Matrox Graphics, Inc. MGA G400/G450 
(rev 85)

Here is my xorg.conf [3] and the Xorg.0.log [4].

Is this a configuration issue, or should I open a bug in bugzilla?
