When the PDF/X-3 exporter was originally coded CMYK tiffs were a 
rarity on Linux and only Corel Photoshop could really handle them. 
Wine could not run Photoshop etc.. That has all changed for the 
better :)

I just added a big caution about this in the docs and 1.2.3 will have 
added tooltips to avoid this.
