Thanks to Hamish and Glynn for the suggestion to recompile d.colormode
from grass 5 in grass6.
Yes hamish, I first tried with the binary from grass 5 - ooops. :-o
Recompiling does work with no changes to the code and a small change to
the makefiles and this overcomes the problems of having only a 256
colour display card.
