Right, so it turns out that the Munki software does install
a daemon that grabs the instrument. You need to find the
ninjad process id and then kill it, ie:

  ps -A | grep XRite | grep ninjad | awk '{ print $1; }' | xargs kill

and then run chart read within a couple of seconds, before
ninjad starts up again.
