Snow Leopard Magenta Cast Revisited

Has the magenta colour cast when printing from any app in 10.6 been cured yet ? For me the answer is no !! I never had a problem until 10.6 !! Current setup is Mac Book Pro with 10.6, Canon Pro9000 Mk2, Image Specialist inks and all profiled with an EyeOne. All software is up to date and custom profiles are made for my paper / ink combo. Result prints do not match screen and print with a magenta colour cast.

So yesterday I dusted off my old G4 Power book clean installed Tiger 10.4 plus all the latest updates and installed Photoshop CS. Printed my profile targets (on the old machine) and then made custom ICC profile with my newer MacBook. I then printed the same photo from both machines using the same ICC profile and printer settings. Result print from G4 10.4 perfect, print form Intel Mac book 10.6 magenta cast.

Does this really mean I have to export all my images to my G4 for printing ? This is just plain silly.

Anyone out there no of a fix.
