Last time I did a softproof in GIMP I ended up with darker and less
saturated prints. So I did a simple test --- captured screenshots of a
window holding "normal" view of a photo and a "softproof", then merged
them into a multilayer image and changed softproof shot's layer mode
to "difference". Everything except just few pixels was black. I was
probably doing something really stupid, but to me it sounded like
softproof was broken. It was fairly recently and I didn't have time to
write a proper report (and I didn't try that with other photos). If
you are interested, I still could do that.
