Jehan, this is irrelevant to the question :)

The question is whether GIMP does the correct color space conversion
and, as a matter of fact, whether it should do it at all, which
depends on the kind of printing plug-in in use.

If this is about the Gutenprint plug-in, then any wrongdoings are most
likely on its side.

If this is about the printing via stock GTK+ dialog, then it depends
on the version of GTK+ and operating system.
