Photoshop CS5: Color shift in external monitor when switching to full screen view.

I'm getting a color shift when I open a .tif file on my second monitor.

I'm running a macbook pro, with an Eizo external at the office or an Apple Cinema display in home office. All monitors are profiled with xrite i1 Display. Photoshop CS5 12.04 x64

When I open an image (any format, any RGB color space) and change from windowed to full screen mode (by hitting "F") the color changes dramatically. It also appears to be assigning the wrong profile if I drag the window from my external monitor back to my laptop display (oversaturated as though you assigned ProfotoRGB to a sRGB tagged file).

Example, left image windowed, right window full screen: http://twitter.yfrog.com/ntr29qaj

Once I go full screen and back to windowed, the image stays in the new color state.

Any ideas or ways that I'm messing up my color settings?

Which OS version?

Apple did introduce some problems with multiple displays after Photoshop CS5 shipped, which required significant changes in CS6 to work around the OS issues.

So you get the 10.7.2 bugs plus all new Apple bugs.

Try the CS6 trial and see if things get better.
