So it would appear to be autoconfiguring 32-bit, but 32-bit isn't actually

Try putting a stanza like this into /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/lts.conf:


with the mac address of your thin client in the brackets.  If that doesn't
work try dropping to a colour depth of 16.

If this fix works, we should report a bug against xorg with lspci -vv on
the thin client, so it can be fixed to autoconfigure the correct colour
depth with this hardware.
