color palettes

To subscribers of the xforms list from "Andrew Baucom" <> :

I'm using xforms on a SUN sparcstation and using it
through a Hummingbird Exceed X-Windows software on a
windows NT machine...

When I set my own 256 color colormap it works fine...
When I move the cursor off the form the colormap changes
back to the system one, which is ok...However, when I
click on the xform itself, the colormap flips back to
the system colormap and then corrects itself real quick
to the colormap I set. It happens fast but is an
annoying palette flip.

question...since it doesn't seem to do this on the
SUN console, is this a quirk with hummingbird or
some colormap/event situation I'm overlooking?
