I had this problem with the original XF86 server, that I replaced with
the Xpmac that was posted this morning ...  It seemed that MacOS would
set the bit depth of the screen to one the XF86 could not recognize or
handle, so that is why it would be that weird colour and segfault. When
that happened, and the X-server exited, it said it was trying to set a
24-bit screen.  But the second time (when it would run correctly) it'd
say 15-bit screen.  So it looks like X set the bit depth correctly on
the first launch and was able to use it the second time.

But with the new X-server, I don't have this problem...
