Bug Description

[Impact]
When i set X_COLOR_DEPTH=24 in lts.conf it does get overwritten to to 16 bit.

[test case]
1) set X_COLOR_DEPTH=24 in lts.conf
2) boot a thin client and check if X is started with -depth 16

[regression potential]
None

[development fix]
I know this section is deprecated but it's actually relevant in this case ;)
The fix hasn't hit quantal yet because of some massive packaging rework going on with LTSP to try and bring us in sync with Debian. I can guarantee that we will have a new upstream release in quantal that will include this fix. ETA is of a couple of weeks.

we need to pull this patch from upstream trunk to fix this issue.
