Re: [gembud] GEMPAK6.4.0 _gf programs XQueryColors error

I'm getting a very similar error with most of our gempak scripts. Gempak 6.4.0 running on CentOS 6.2 (x86-64). The script is running on an Xvfb display. Below is the error message I get when running gdplot2, gpmap, etc:

   X Error of failed request:  BadName (named color or font does not exist)
      Major opcode of failed request:  45 (X_OpenFont)
      Serial number of failed request:  72
      Current serial number in output stream:  1578

I've done a ton of searching and haven't found any resolution yet.

Attached is the GEMPAK shell script we use to run gdcntr_gf as well as our 
grayscale color table.
I am also sending along the results of `xdpyinfo` and `freeColors`.
All of this is being sent as a tar.gz file.

Here is an example of how you would run the shell script..
Syntax:  nturb_graygif [dir] [garea] [proj] [device] [gemfile] F[time] [level]

/usr/local/tcl/plotplans/uv/nturb_graygif /tmp 39.5935\;0.5402\;51.8207\;23.110 
str/46.2593\;10.5704\;0/nm gf\|turbtst.gif\|800\;600 
/product/grendel/chartdata/drvd.gem F6 850

I saw X_QueryColors error mentioned in a 2005 support message, but it had no 

GEMPAK6.4.0 is running on RHEL5.7 i386

Help would be very appreciated
