I use MC and Runrev over windows 2003. while some things may 
or may not work, switching the XP themes can be a solution. 

I've had black boxes even without TS!

2nd, the display depth of the TS may affect things too - it's
usually set to 8 or 16 bits to reduce bandwidth. See
if you can find or make a matching png file and test it.

Since there is no video card involved... just image transmission
I think it's more of a png translation problem. Same prob happens
with MC with its startup screen althout it's not black!

cheers
Xavier
