Yes, it's a reflector problem. The White Pine clients, when sending color,
send a data type that the public reflector does not recognize. Since it does
not recognize it, it does not pass it on. If you send grey scale from the
White Pine client, the reflector will recognize that data type, and everything
will work fine. Even if you did have a commercial reflector, your MAC client
wouldn't be able to decode the color being sent by the PC client anyway.

Bottom line, can't send color through a 4.0 B3 reflector.
