windib appears to always set the SDL_HWPALETTE flag in SetVideoMode, even when the bit depth is greater than 8. This can cause a segfault when SetGammaRamp is called, as it blindly tries to dereference the non-existent palette's colors.

I think the line video->flags |= SDL_HWPALETTE should be inside the scope of the preceeding if statement, as in the attached patch.

Tagging this bug with "target-1.2.14" so we can try to resolve it for SDL 1.2.14.

Please note that we may choose to resolve it as WONTFIX. This tag is largely so we have a comprehensive wishlist of bugs to examine for 1.2.14 (and so we can close bugs that we'll never fix, rather than have them live forever in Bugzilla).

This is already fixed in subversion. Thanks!
