Bug Description

I have used the Color control panel to set up a color profile for my monitor. In previous Ubuntu versions using gnome-color-manager, when I did this, programs such as eog, gimp, ufraw... all were able to use the color profile when I chose "System Default" as the color management option. (eog was able to convert sRGB images without any help to the default profile).

In the current build, I can choose a color profile, but it appears to have no effect on rendered images in all programs. Further, the ICC_PROFILE xprop is not set anymore. If I manually set it using xicc, gimp and ufraw work as expected -- eog still does not.

Here's the details of my system:

An additional comment...In the latest builds, I can no longer apply a color profile to my monitor in the control panel; no monitors are listed.

For reference, I'm using the NVIDIA proprietary driver.
