[Lazarus] bmp setpixelformat not working in linux

Hi,  This is my first time in the mailing list, and also my first time trying to port an application from delphi, so please be kind, I will need a LOT of help...

I need to convert a bmp image to 4 bits pixel format, in windows / delphi I just use :

bmp.pixelformat :=pf4bit;

but in linux / lazarus It just appears to delete the image.  Tracing the program step by step I can see in the file custombitmap.inc :

procedure TCustomBitmap.SetPixelFormat(AValue: TPixelFormat);
  if AValue = FPixelFormat then Exit;
  {$IFDEF VerboseLCLTodos}{$note todo copy image into new format }{$ENDIF}
  FPixelFormat := AValue;

So apparently it is not implemented yet.   By any chance anyone know how to do this? 

Thanks in advance,

Juan Carlos
