gifs are bitmaps

You said it was a vector before.

There are two general categories of images: bit mapped (or raster) and vector (or object-oriented) images

(graphic designers should know this stuff--we'll call you an artist working in adigital medium, ok :tazz: )

My sense is that your logo, not having seen it, exceeds 256 colors? Since Gifs can only display 256 colors, a logo with more colors is not going to look so good

Images and links might help us to understand your issue better
