Xvfb was letting the 'fb' code pick the RGB masks for pixels, so we got
BGR color order.  It was also not picky about depths, so when you asked 
for a x16 screen, you ended up with a depth 15 one.  I'm afraid I 
hard-coded this to depth 16 so that it worked correctly for me; a better 
fix would be to respect the command line argument, but that seems "hard".

With the current setup, you can use 'lightpipe' to a "normal" PC graphics 
card and things look right.
