[Digikam-users] digiKam editor tools slow with lcms 2.x

Hi list,

since my distro (gentoo linux) started to build digikam with
lcms 2.5, I have an annoying problem:

I open an image in "Image Editor". When i choose
  Color -> Brightness / Contrast / Gamma...
this tools needs about 10 seconds to be ready to use.

If I turn of "Color Managed View", the tool is ready
in less than 1 second.

Opening an image in "Image Editor" in "Color Managed View"
is done in about 1 second. So it does not seem to be a sole
lcms problem.

This also applies to many other image editing tools "Image

Has someone else encountered such a problem?

I already filed a bug for this with more details:

I use:
  - digiKam 3.5.0
  - KDE 4.11.2
  - lcms 2.5  ( I had no problem with lcms version 1.19)
