#326 incorrect colors

graphics (66)

in 16color text mode and 256 color graphics mode the pallete turns gold or turns into a standerd windows palette
the only way to restore it is switch to fullscreen and back and ocassionally the left of the
screen doesnt get updated

    this isn't a bug of dosbox.
    it is usually caused by a program that runs on your pc who decides to change the palette.
    Check for things in your taskbar/background.

    I think some of the DVD playback programs/monitors cause it.

    Wow, a bug report with not even the OS type posted, missing info
    about the graphics card and driver version, reproducability
    instructions or ANYTHING that matters?
