I would like to confirm this bug for digikam 0.9.4-beta5 using kde 3.5.9 on
debian lenny 64-bit.

Under "Digikam, Settings, Configure digikam, Image Editor Color Management
"Enable Color Management" is checked.
The "Color Profiles Directory" is set to /usr/share/color/icc.
Under "ICC Profiles Settings", "Use color managed view" is checked.
"Monitor" is set to sRGB.
"Workspace" set to linear Prophoto.

Upon closing digikam, removing some unused profiles and adding a few new
profiles to /usr/share/color/icc:

"Monitor" is now set to "myProPhote RGB" (a very inappropriate monitor
profile) and "Workspace" is set to ECI-RGB.icc.  The "Input" and "Soft
proof" profiles did not change.

So I reset the monitor to sRGB and the workspace to linear Prophoto.  Upon
closing digikam and removing a couple more profiles (NOT the ones selected
in digikam, fwiw), and then reopening digikam and checking the color
management settings, now the Monitor profile is "Adobe RGB", the workspace
profile is still "linear prophoto", but this time the input profile has

Even weirder, if I click on the "Info" button next to the four "ICC Profiles
Settings," the "Monitor, AdobeRGB" Info button says the profile is sRGB, as
does the "Workspace linear prophoto" info button.

It gets weirder.  I went through the whole procedure a third time.  And yet
again the monitor and workspace profiles  got changed, and the "info" button
says "srgb" for both profiles.  But this time it is a different srgb
variant.  The first time, the particular srgb was the old hewlett packard
srgb.  This time it's a canon variant of srgb.  Which is exceedingly weird,
as the ****only**** srgb profile in /usr/share/color/icc is in fact the old
hewlett packard copyrighted srgb from 1998.  Canon's srgb has a different
