This doesn't suprise me :-/.  Xqcam is still pretty young and it 
assumes that you're using an 8-bit color display.  I'll try to fix it 
as soon as I can, but there are other things I want to fix first.  If 
there's anyone out there who understands X, please take a look at 
xqcam.c and fix the color-handling code.  If no one steps up, I'll try 
to fix it next week.
