The usual reasons for inconsistent graphics displays are either that the 
monitor is set to display too few colors, or the graphics card driver is 
out of date. Installing the latest driver for the card is usually 
recommended.

If those things don't work, you could try creating your gifs with a 
different graphics program. On the Mac, at least, I have noticed that 
the files created with Photoshop and those created with Graphic 
Converter display differently in Rev; in particular, Photoshop gifs 
don't produce reliable transparency when brought into Rev, where GC's do.

You just threw this in to confuse us, right? ;)
