I've seen this on a Canon iPF9000 (Lucia ink) too. Proofs got a really
bad red cast (specially neutrals/skin tones) when viewed in
non-standard light. Costumers were not too happy about this. The
solution was to build the proofer profile with max K (or close to it).
Just, look out for banding and cross-overs. After that, proofs are
much more "stable" in other than standard light.
