Has SOMETHING to do with the Apple DVI -> VGA adapter being "too compliant" -- apparently the extra DVI pins get tricked by low quality VGA and somehow disable the wrong color channel.

Quick and dirty "fix": do NOT screw-in the adapter all the way, so the the portion nearest the back of the MacBookPro is about 1/16" away from fully seated. This will result in the extra pins NOT being connected and the VGA signal will look fine. Some folks have gone so far as to clip off the extra pins...
