Finally someone besides my detects that the default color-settings softdevice 
uses are not correct.

Can't softdevice just be patched to internally use unchanged values, e.g. use 
the values from xv as initialization and just change them when user does.


For the cvs-version I use there is no control contained in the menu to choose 
between Pseudo OSD and software-blended. But setting in setup.conf works 
nevertheless.
