This seems to be an Imlib problem (this library is used by both GTK
and Enlightenment), they hardcoded pixel formats compatible with
XFree86 in their rendering code. :-\

Try to run Xvnc with -pixelformat RGB888 option for 24-bit color, or
with -pixelformat RGB565 for 16-bit colors. (Note: TightVNC chooses
these pixel formats by default).
