I have now tried colour management on and seem to get comparable 
results, so far:


At first I didn't realize the I had to check the "Use ICC profile" option on 
the PDF generation. The tooltip says it's used for embedding a profile into 
the images, but if the option is not checked the colours seem to go wrong...
