I am forwarding my reply to norman to the mailing list,
because i missed the fact that he was replying privately (ie directly
to me, not to the gimp-user mailing list at all). Please note, norman,
that omitting parts of conversation is rather poor netiquette*; as you
had not clearly indicated that you wanted to keep our talk off-list, I
decided to reply in a way that includes the list. If you disagree,
please let me know; otherwise, in future please send an instance of
your replies to the mailing list ('reply to all' should achieve this..
it's normal to use 'reply to all' with mailing lists rather than just
*replying privately results in a gap in the conversation on the
mailing list, where.. when I reply... my reply and quotation of your
message can be seen, but not your original reply, since you didn't
send it to the list. the resultant conversation looks fragmented.

(the same, for both his images and yours?)
So, what happens if you set your display profile to sRGB IEC61966-2.1
with WhitePoint D65?
Perhaps this is a better fit for your display than nativePC. Does that
fix the viewing problem?
You might also consider checking out what the respective images look
like when you disable color management completely, if the above does
