	You should not have to do anything when you switch colordepths.
My guess is it's one of the apps that's starting up and being swallowed in
the wharf doesn't like to be run in 24bpp.  Or it might possibly be the
method you are using to start X - are you setting the DefaultColorDepth in
the XF86Config or using startx to set the depth?  

p.s. You could have cut out the 500 gazillion commented lines in your conf
file before sending it to everyone on the mailing list. :)
