My monitor profile was already set to None, but
unchecking Try to use the system monitor profile does
make the issue go away.

Two questions:

1.  Shouldn't Try to use.... be unchecked by default
at installation?  This would prevent some confusion,
at least it would have for me.

2.  If Try to use... is left checked, and printing is
done through GIMP, should I expect the printed result
to be different from the version printed through
Windows Picture and Fax Viewer?

Also, at some point I've turned off the option to
automatically receive post to this board via e-mail,
but I can't find a link to get back to my profile to
change it.  Can someone direct me to the correct place
to change this setting, please?

Thanks ..... Mark
