I've had similar problems. It looks like colors always get converted to
CMYK and back if I'm using color management. This is frustrating. If I
enter an RGB value, I want it exactly as I entered it. There are some
values I cannot enter - they get always changed when I press "Ok".

Apart from that, the color previews doesn't take the current profile into
account - I get badly converted CMYK representation e.g. in the
Properties dialog.

Bye, Tino.
