A quick PS .. I see the attachements now and its clear that the first is 
in LCD mode
and the second is in greyscale mode.

So its not remotely possible to compare these two cases.
If you are running under KDE, then historically there's been some
problems in finding out what the desktop settings are so we may be
trying greyscale instead of LCD. Might be interesting for you to debug that.
But you need to set the RenderingHing for LCD_HRGB hint if you really 
want to compare.
