Yes, we have seen this problem here, and it's a major one for us,
because we allow our students to use our windows labs using virtual
machines through Remote Desktop connection. The color problem is the
same whether you're using the Windows remote desktop client or the
Mac client. The only way I've ever gotten Rev or Rev-based apps to
display in any usable form is to set the color bit depth of the
remote session very low (8 bits I think). It looks awful, but it
works. I told Kevin about this problem at RevCon, and he wanted me to
check to see if the problem still occurred with v. 2.7.x. It does.
I'll visit bugzilla and add my votes and a comment.
