Well the driver must think there is some difference because it bails out
with a "not supported" when i select 32bit color depth :-) I dunno if
the radeon actually does a 24bit packed (3 byte) or a 24bit unpacked
(4byte) store in the frame buffer. Also the Matrox cards support this
10bit per color thing, so they need 30bit per pixel, there 24bit and
32bit really would be different.
