I don't believe this can be a bug in the firmware. I think it's just
that the video driver behaves differently when the firmware is
installed, and this triggers a bug in gnome-color-manager. There might
also be a driver bug, though.
I'll assign it to gnome-color-manager in the hope that the maintainer
can at least work out where this is going wrong.
You can't have everything. Where would you put it?
