[scribus] Missing printer colour profile

Hi there,

I'm running Scribus under Windows XP Pro SP3.

I have a Canon Pixma iP5200 (4-colour CMYK), and there are 6 Canon ICM
profiles in folder C:\Windows\system32\spool\drivers\color. They all show up
in the XP > Control Panel > Colour applet. They don't appear in Scribus's
Document Setup > Colour Management printer drop-down.

However, my BenQ Display's colour profile *does* show up in the Scribus
Colour Management monitor drop-down (and in the XP colour applet, and its in
folder C:\Windows\system32\spool\drivers\color).

How come Scribus finds the monitor's colour profile but not the canon
printer's colour profile? 

Hope someone can help!
