If running the desktop at 15bpp the throbber only displays while it is inactive.
As soon as it is supposed to be active it disappears, and only reappears when
inactive once again.

Also, the throbbers for tabs loading in the background do not display.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set desktop to 15bpp
2. Observe throbber is visible
3. Try loading page. Throbber is no longer visible.
4. Once loaded the throbber reappears

Actual Results:  
The throbber was not visible while loading the page.

Expected Results:  
The throbber should have been visible and doing the rotation animation.

This is on Debian Sarge (xfree 4.3.0.dfsg.1-12.0.1).

Switching to 16bpp or 24bpp fixes the problem, and it was seen using both the nv
driver and the ati driver.
