You can test yourself:

x save the file from GIMP incl. the ICC profile it was converted to.

x open both DK and GIMP images in CinePaint and check the ICC profile
information. CinePaint has to be compiled with the icc_examin plugin.

Alternatively, you can extract the profile from images:

$ convert DK_image.png DK_sRGB_profile.icc
(convert is from ImageMagick suite)

and then have a look at the textual information:

$ iccdump DK_sRGB_profile.icc
(iccdump is from argyllcms package)

And compare with the GIMP image's profile.
