Let me explain how this arose.  There seems to be something bizarre
going on with gimp 2-4.

I  use vuescan to scan, and it embeds a profile depending on the
specified output space.  iccdump -s finds this profile without

Now if I read that file into gimp and then write it out, even without
changing it,  and then apply iccdump -s to the result,  I get the
iccdump message about V4.   On the other hand,  if I create a file in
gimp or read one in which doesn't have an embedded profile, it doesn't
embed a profile in the output file.

I understand this is not an iccdump problem, but I have been having some
problem getting information about what gimp does.  So if anyone has any
idea of what is going on, I would appreciate hearing it.
