In general paletted files should not be averaged for overviews.

MODE is not actually implemented as a downsampling type.  I 
should either remove it from the Usage message, or implement it. 
However, I can never decide which to do.

Hmm, the above are not expected.  I would encourage you to try 
"-r near" with current code (perhaps the beta) and see if the problem
still occurs.  If so, report it with details and I wll see what I can do. 

If you are using the CADRG data directly from OGDI and trying to build
overviews against an OGDI datasource, you might be well advised 
convert to GeoTIFF first.
