(So we're surprised it is applied when restarting)

Huh. This shouldn't work *at all*; it's one of the bits of XRandR that is not yet implemented. Does it really apply a colour profile? If so, I don't actually know how it's doing it ☺

Well the colors looked garish and horrible when I first selected the color profile. Then I rebooted and they looked less terrible. I assumed that is because of the color profile but it could have been caused by something else.

summary: - Color profile change is not instant when unity-system-compositor is
- running
+ Color profiles are not supported/implemented yet

I think the profile is not applied at all. At least it is not on my system. ==> changing the description
