This sounds like McIDAS is allocating a private color map for the
McIDAS-X session.  This will be done when your X window session already
has applications that are using up the majority of the available colors.
the solution is to either exit those other applications and then
start McIDAS, or to reconfigure your X server to run in something
other than 8-bit mode.

I have never seen this one.  It certainly warrants a closer look.  I
will try to reproduce the problem if you can send me the exact invocation
command line that you were running.
