  That works -- as far as GRASS reporting more colors available when I
restart the monitor. I'm not seeing a greater gradation in the displayed DEM
map. I can specify a background color with the d.rast command, but not a
range of colors.

  r.colors has pre-defined color tables. It appears that 'wave' has the
greatest range of colors. Is this a valid assumption?
