That's not uncommon on an 8-bit PseudoColor display.  When one 
application steals all of the colormap entries, the rest of the desktop 
is forced to suffer with inferior color rendering.

As an experiment, you could try adding
   Visual "DirectColor"
   Visual "TrueColor"
to the "Display" subsection of your XF86Config file.  That forces it to 
use a 3:3:2 colormap which makes ALL applications look equally bad.
