The situation is more complicated that that.  I have not done a lot of
Kodachromes on my LS4000, but for those that I have done so far (a few
dozen), the infrared ICE function has worked just fine.

Perhaps the results are related to variations in Kodachrome emulsions (most
of mine are K64 from the early 70s).
