Uninstalling the nouvea driver didn't help.

I found that changing the max colors did help. However the system config
menu for doing this has problems. The possible screen resolutions and
color depth should interact but don't. So that when in 24bit mode you
can't specify a change to both a lower color depth and a higher resolution
that won't work with the current color depth. Or perhaps worse, you can
choose a higher color depth when at a resolution that won't work with it
and then end up having to reboot in level 3 when your login screen is
fubar'd.

So I think I can do what I want now, but perhaps I should bugzilla how the
config menu works?
