[R] X11() and pseudo color

we are running R under Solaris with SunRay Terminals, which are set to 8 bit color to comply with some other software. In this configuration, X11() opens with colortype=true, i.e., it is not recognized that actually the display is only 8 bit. This leads to error messages (advising to use 'pseudo.cube').

question 1: is X11() supposed to recognize the actual color capabilities? i.e. is this a bug?

question 2: is there a possibility to query the color capabilities from within R in order to being able to open the X11() displays always (for true color as well as for 8 bit) with the correct colortype setting from within a function?

regards,
joerg
