Ok good to know.  I believe, based on the HP 332 Service Information
Manual, that by default the 332 ships with the equivalent of an HP
98542A medium resolution monochrome video board.  That is a 512x400
board.  If the upgrade kit is installed I believe it should then be
the equivalent of the HP 98544B.  The upgrade consists of a pixel
clock crystal and a replacement ROM.

I will add the check for 'planes > 1' that David suggested and also
adjust the width when the height is 400.
