The most obvious issue I am having is that medium shades of gray have a green
cast. The cups test page's color wheel generally looks OK, except the white
and black wedges. The White wedge starts with what appears black in the
center, then fades into a light green color towards the middle, then is white
at the outside. The Black (K) wedge is the inverse: black on the outside,
green in the middle, and white in the center.
