10.4: Avoid a fast user switching color profile bug
Authored by: oliverchaddock on Jan 09, '06 08:10:09AM

I'm also experiencing a color profile bug, although of a different nature and mine affects 10.3.9 running on a powerbook.

I used a custom profile - it's just the standard ColorLCD profile but with the gamma changed to PC 2.2 (I find the display is too washed out white with the mac gamma). Whenever I hook the powerbook up to my TV via the VGA cable the screen refreshes on the laptop, and in doing so it reverts back to the default ColorLCD profile. In other words, after every movie/tv show/slideshow I watch via the mac I have to open system preferences and change the color profile back.

The strangest thing i suppose is that when I go into the display pane of sys prefs my custom profile is still highlighted as if it is active. But when i click on it again i see the changed gamma kick in.

I've never seen a solution for this 100% reproducible bug, but I thought perhaps someone reading the above hint might know a fix.

Thank you. Thank You. Thank You! Worked as described.

This has been by far, the most annoying bug in Tiger for me to date. Let me echo a previous poster's curiosity: How did you figure this one out?
