When I apply an Output Profile in UFRaw and send to GIMP, GIMP asks me
whether to keep the embedded profile or convert to sRGB, so I do know
that it's noticing a profile there. You can set GIMP to ask on the
bottom drop-down of that menu.

Also, just to check "if it's plugged in", if you run ImageMagick's
"identify -verbose myfile.tif", does it have a section like

     Profile-icc: 3004 bytes
       Description: Pink
       Manufacturer: IEC
       Model: IEC 61966-2.1 Default RGB colour space - sRGB
       Copyright: Copyright (c) 1998 Hewlett-Packard Company Modified using 
Adobe Gamma


Or, if you click Image→Image Properties (alternatively:
Image→Mode→Set/Convert Colour Profile), does it say that the current one
is sRGB built-in, or that it is YourProfileName?

I don't see this. What I do see is that no matter what crazy embedded
Output Profile I use in UFRaw (and I select "keep embedded" in GIMP),
changing the RGB Profile in that part of GIMP doesn't change what the
image looks like, and they all look the same no matter what profile they
have (or even if they don't have a profile).

However, if I open an image without an embedded profile, clicking
Image→Image Properties tells me that the profile is "sRGB built-in", and
if I have RGB Profile set to something weird in Preferences then, the
image gets weird colours.

Tested using UFRaw version 0.18, GIMP version 2.7.4, on Arch Linux.

Ah. Perhaps the difference is to do with Windows?
