Bug Description

Ubuntu version: 10.10
gtk-vnc version: 0.4.1-3ubuntu2

When I attempt to connect to my PowerPC running Mac OS X 10.5.8, the colors are all off. There is a general yellow cast to the screen, reds appear greenish, greens appear reddish, etc. This would seem to be similar or related to the endian issue which was brought up in this bug report for Hardy Heron: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gtk-vnc/+bug/212504

This behavior only occurs when using clients which make use of the gtk-vnc package. xvnc4viewer is unaffected by this issue, as are other clients.

I thought this issue had been cleared up in gtk-vnc v. 0.3.5, according to this post: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gtk-vnc/+bug/218667

Additional information:
Client computer: Asus EeePC 1005HAB, Intel Atom 1.60 GHz processor
VNC Server: iMac G5, 2.0 GHz, 1.5 GB RAM running Mac OS X 10.5.8. (pre built in camera)
