WINUAE_PPC + Picasso IV vs Apus + X11 in vesafb mode

A long time ago, when I was waiting for OS4 and not wanted to go for PC, I worked on Linux for a while. Now, rumors of amazing WinUAE PPC compatibility with "real Amiga" pushed me to check what it looks like right now. Installing woody went quite smoothly. I have not encountered greater problems than with real Amiga. I could run X11 vesa mode, but only in 8bit-depth. The 16bit-depth screen looks a little strange.

My real Amiga is A1200 + BlizzardPPC + Bvision. And on this hardwer all works well
I do not know how Apus works on real A4000 + CvisionPPC + Picasso IV. and I have no idea how to check it out.

I have a few questions for experts.
Has nobody written a Picasso IV driver for Apus by 10 years?
Is the Picasso IV compatible with vesa only for 8bit?
or is there an error with the Picasso IV emulation?

Enable log makes sense only on the crash.
I used kernel from
and the installation disk
WinUAE configuration is the same as for OS4.
Configured Mouse Device is "/dev/amigamouse"
Configured Mouse Protocol is "busmose"
