  I might suspect this, but only for severe tonal adjustments ... i.e., no
color space is perfect.

  As to why and how to avoid it, you may want to submit the same query to
the gurus who reside within the Adobe forums.  Goto adobeforums.com, and
register for the "color management" forum (a link on the right).  You'll
need to subscribe, and then bookmark the forum.  Lots of good info, and I'll
be watching for responses to your query.
