X sometimes loses pixels in pixmaps, as seen in this ASCII art
rendition by Bill Studenmund:

>  _  _  _  _   where "-" represents no pixel drawn, and "*" represents a
>               drawn pixel.
>  _  *  _  * 

It's known to occur in amaya and Enlightenment under Xmacppc. It has
also been reported in Enlightenment under XalphaNetBSD. All of the
reported cases have been when using an 8 bit display.
Unknown. I'm hoping other people have seen this and will add more
information to this PR that will help track down the bug.
