What do you mean? I believe that it's in RGBA (or ARGB, I forget which) form 

Is it possible that this is an endianness issue and that the byte ordering 
within a 32-bit word isn't predictable across platforms? I sure hope not, as 
I'm counting on it to be the same.

What hardware platform are you using?
