Color inconsistencies in file export
I encountered an issue with file export and correctness of colors. To reproduce it, take a photo with quite saturated colors which has been processed in a previous session with DT.
1) open DT and export photo from lighttable mode into JPEG with internal Adobe RGB and perceptual output intent
2) enter darkroom mode with this photo and immediately go back to lighttable mode again (no changes done)
3) export photo with same parameters as in 1)
Photo exported unter 1 is dull and undersaturated; Photo exported under 3 is good.
I have not tested other profiles but this issue seems to be independent of output file format (tested 8bit/16bit tiff and jpeg)

Probably related: When I start dt all the thumbnails in lt are dull, after entering and leaving dr the opened images has the correct thumbnail.
@upegelow: How did you manage to export images with AdobeRGB profiles? What version of lcms2 are you using?

Unfortunately the latest commit does not improve things. Still exports remain dull, unless I have gone into darkroom mode once.
BTW: this behavior seems to be independent of the profile. I checked with DT's internal Adobe RGB and also with an external Adobe RGB (1998) ICC file.
Further info: I am compiling against lcms2 version 2.1
