If you are willing/able to build openbox from sources, I have a patch
that may or may not fix the 24-bit case.
I have attached the diff file for the changes.

> 2. I then went back to my QEMU install and invoked QEMU with the -std-vga option. No problem with 24 bits. FWIW, QEMU supposedly emulates a Cirrus Logic GD5446 Video card by default. Also, the author recommends 16 bit video on both the host and the guest (http://bellard.org/qemu/qemu-doc.html#TOC50).
> Now the only problem I'm having is getting either VirtualBox or QEMU with -std-vga to display at a resolution less than gigantic. But that's a subject for another forum. :-)
