ICC color profile application lost during login

Bug Description

I assume colord is the correct package to report this bug against, but to be honest I really don't know!

I have an ICC color profile which is not being applied at login. Upon logging in, the system (Unity) appears to use it for a second or so, but then something happens which results in it being unloaded. This never happened in Ubuntu 13.10.

Go to system settings, color. Note the correct profile is selected (your custom profile). Choose the default (system) profile (i.e. not your custom profile), and then again choose the profile that is meant to be used. The correct color profile will now be used until logout.

A method of reproducing in trusty:

In System / Colors

1.) select a color profil -> profile is active

2.) logout / reboot and login -> for only tick the profil is active

3.) in System / Colors the profile is marked as active

4.) after selecting another profile and then the first again -> profile is active

5.) return to 2.

Tested with D50, D55, D65, blue

In /var/log/syslog no error messages

Setting this bug as "Triaged" and "Medium" importance per request in #ubuntu-bugs on IRC.

Note that we typically only use the "Assigned To" field to indicate who is currently working on a fix for the bug (alongside the "In Progress" status normally), so I am removing the assignment of this bug to Jörg.

Via a BIOS setting my laptop can switch between integrated (intel) and nvidia graphics. The bug only occurs when running nvidia. I have not installed the nvidia binary driver.

I can confirm this bug with AMD graphics running the catalyst drivers.
