Thanks for reply, Anders!
I found Xlib Visual structure that contains color masks. Actually
masks was normal RGB:
R=0xFF0000, G=0xFF00 and B=0xFF.
Swapping R and B masks gave me necessary result.
By some strange resons X RGB image converts to PIL BRG image, in
Image.fromstring I think, and BRG accordingly to RGB =)
Anyway now all screenshot will have the right color masks.
