Yes, that would cause it not to work - it only cycles through the
configured resolutions, and only the ones with the same color depth
as you are currently running. So if you are running 32 bit color, it
will not cycle through the 16 bit color resolutions. (Or at least it
didn't the last time I checked - they may have added the ability to
change color depth when I wasn't looking.)
