Sorry for closing the bug, I confused it with the warning being issued during the print workflow. In the print workflow I have fixed the problem by calling Ghostscript with "-dColorConversionStrategy=/LeaveColorUnchanged" instead of "-dUseDeviceIndependentColor", At least in the print workflow one can do so as the pre-filter for turning incoming PostScript to PDF is not supposed to do color corrections.

affects: ghostscript (Ubuntu) → texlive-extra (Ubuntu)

manu, your problem is probably in the way how okular calls Ghostscript. Please file a new bug in okular.

I cannot reproduce this anymore.

In fact, I can reproduce it with both Okular and ps2pdf, but it seems harmless.
