This is actually how transitions work. The only ones where the palette is not "garbled" are fadein/out transitions and black-out transitions.

Just try the same in sierra sci and it will be exactly the same situation. If you don't notice turn down speed a bit and you will see. We are doing transitions a bit slower, so that one is able to actually see the transition.

The reason for this is that things like scrolling or pixelating to another picture means that 2 pictures are on the screen at once. Most of the time they will not share the same palette, so one palette needs to get set active. This is the new picture palette, so the old picture will look "garbled".
