Make GimpPickButton honor monitor profile

Created attachment 347755 The Gimp file where I detect the colordrift and a screenshot from Color Management Dialog
I know that this behavior is related to colormanagement. But it seems strange to me, that for picking the color from the screen with the color picker the RGB-Profile is used.
I except, that for picking the color from the monitor, the Monitor-Profile should be used.
What I did:
- I made a colored dot in a Gimp picture. (See attachment)
- Afterwards I took the color picker tool and filled it with the color from this dot. The color was a little bit different from the dot I made.
- I made a second dot with the new color beside the first dot.
- Then I filled again the color picker with the color of the second dot. And again it was differnt. So the color was drifting each time I made a new dot.
