Summary0015392: RGB colours changed when exported to PDF and SVG
DescriptionWhen exporting RGB colours to a PDF for Screen/Web or an SVG, they are slightly adjusted. This seems to occur regardless of colour management settings.
Steps To Reproduce1. Start with a new document.
2. Create an RGB colour in Colours and Fills…, e.g., R 228 G 0 B 43
3. Create a rectangle and apply the new colour as its fill.
4. Export to PDF (1.3; Screen/Web; do not compressed text and vector graphics)
5. Open resulting PDF and confirm that the colour is: 0.89412 0.00000 0.17647 rg, which corresponds to R 228 G 0 B 45.

The PDF should contain 0.89412 0.00000 0.16863 rg
Additional InformationTested with Scribus 1.5.5svn r22594.
TagsNo tags attached.

The same behaviour also occurs when exporting to images with colour management disabled.

The issue is caused by some rounding errors in QColor getHsv() and setHsv(). Now fixed.
