What part of the image ? ie, are neutrals too blue ?
What intent were you using ?
How fluorescent is your paper ? (CM is effectively UV filtered).

To figure out what's going on, you need to remove extraneous elements
such as Gimp. What happens if you us ArgyllCMS to manage the color ?

ie. standard test image -> sRGB -> cctiff -> Epson profile -> printed on 
printer using
exactly the same settings as your test chart.

If that still shows a problem, you can then pin down a particular example
(such as RGB .5 .5 .5) and run it though the color pipeline to examine and
test what's happening at each step.

If that's not the problem, then you need to investigate what Gimp is doing,
or how your test chart printing differs from printing from other programs.
