The gnome-settings-daemon is reporting a permision denied error trying to read my display's color profile:

Aug 15 22:05:14 formenos.lan gnome-settings-daemon.desktop[1911]: (gnome-settings-daemon:1911): color-plugin-WARNING **: failed to set screen _ICC_PROFILE: Failed to open file '/home/user/.local/share/icc/edid-<profile>.icc': Permission denied

The file is owned by 'user' and world readable but the higher level directories are readable only by 'user'

Should user gdm have access to this file?
