Following to myself I've found out that issue disappears if I set depth
of vncserver to 24 bits (default is 16) no matter what vncviewer color
depth I use.

So probably a toolkit/library used to draw background under text and
other one used for drawing background outside of text differently map
color from outside of server palette to available color.

For me the problem is solved although behaviour with lower bit depth is
expected. Should I file a bug report about it?
