Please report problems like this via bugzilla ( ), as that will make sure the right person 
(the package maintainer) gets the report. On the list otoh reports get 
missed easily; and for most list subscribers it's irrelevant and just 
annoying noise.

This to me (I'm not very familiar with the drivers, so I might be wrong) 
looks like a configuration issue; seems a color depth of 8 is hardcoded 
(or automatically selected) in the xorg.conf. Nevertheless you should 
report this as bug if yxou never modified your xorg.conf manually, as 
the root case of this problem should be fixed before others run into 
similar issues.
