[argyllcms] dispcal gamma with sRGB curve

Dear all,
I recently changed my colorimeter (I had a Spyder2, now I have an
Eye-One Display LT) and I am facing what it looks to be a problem.

I run dispread as I was used to:
dispcal -t6500 -gs -k0 -b 100 -q h -v -y l eizoS1961

The problem I am facing is with gamma: dispread -r measures, with the
profile obtained by using the command above, a gamma of 2.82 which is
pretty high. I have not set any ambient light adjustment, therefore I do
not understand why gamma is not 2.2 as it should be. The same command,
with the Spyder2, was giving a gamma of approximately 2.2.
The ambient light measured by argyll is approximately 14.5, but, as I
said, I haven't used this parameter.

Below the results of the calibration ad of the measurement.

Any explanation will be highly appreciated.

Best regards,
        Alberto

Display type is LCD
Target white = 6500.000000 degrees kelvin Daylight spectrum
Target white brightness = 100.000000 cd/m^2
Target black brightness = native brightness
Target gamma = sRGB curve

Display adjustment menu:
Press 1 .. 7
1) Black level (CRT: Offset/Brightness)
2) White point (Color temperature, R,G,B, Gain/Contrast)
3) White level (CRT: Gain/Contrast, LCD: Brightness/Backlight)
4) Black point (R,G,B, Offset/Brightness)
5) Check all
6) Measure and set ambient for viewing condition adjustment
7) Continue on to calibration
8) Exit
