Glad to hear this. I am not sure if the "Generic Gray Profile.icc" is 
really broken. What happens is that if it is chosen as profile for the 
monitor, then lcms gives the error that you have seen "Input profile is 
operating on wrong colorspace", and scribus then crashes. I am seeing 
this, too.

The Fink package copies, at the end of the installation, the profiles 
from /System/Library/ColorSync/Profiles/ to /sw/lib/scribus/profiles/. 
This is done so as to have a minimal set of profiles and to enable those 
scribus functions that need the color management. I suppose I should 
exclude the Gray Profile from the list, since it makes scribus crash and 
it is unfortunately proposed as default monitor profile (for alphabetic 
reasons, I suspect) for new scribus installations. I don't know if there 
are situations where one would want a gray profile.
