I had to fix a bug in RHEL5 with cairo 1.2 failing to work with 15-bit
legacy X servers. To reproduce the bug I found that this works:
Xvfb -screen 0 650x480x15 :1 -pixdepths 15 -render
And a snapshot of the screen can be taken using:
DISPLAY=:1 import -window root snapshot.png
Thought we may want to add targets to the test suite to test all depths
that we're supposed to support...
Anyway, something for ickle to consider :P, as well as documenting these
two commands in the archives.
