it shouldn't show black borders around if the usplash  background
image has same color as index 0 of the color map.

then as i told on a previous mail, and as jani is saying here an image
that is 640x480 looks ok on a screen that has a res of 800x600
1024x764 and so on ... not the same for an image that is 640x400 , you
can see it as you'd expect on a 1024x640 screen (or whatver is the
size that really exists with this ratio :/ )
