Color depth abruptly went from 24 to 16bit

I've been using RDP daily for over a year between the same 2 computers. My
home machine runs at 12x10 with 24-bit color, and I've been able to connect
no problem and still get 24-bit color...up until a few weeks ago. I haven't
explicity installed any new video drivers or other software, but now, when I
connect (via RDP only...local is fine), I get 16 bit color depth, regardless
of how I configure the client. Does someone know what controls the maximum
color depth? I'd like to get 24 bit RDP back, but if not, I'd at least like
to know what triggered the change.
