This problem sounds very much like a bug in the video driver. Translucent windows are always 32 bits regardless of which depth the server is running in, so it's difficult to explain otherwise how it can be working in 16 bits, but not 24.

You didn't mention which server you're using, but I was able to reproduce the problem in Xvesa, and there it seems to affect not just konsole but all apps that have translucent windows (e.g. fdclock). I can't reproduce the bug in the Xfbdev server.

I recommend that you file a bug report about this problem in the freedesktop bugzilla.

If you need a working konsole, a workaround in the meantime is to start it with --noargb, which forces the old pseudo-transparency behavior.
