Can someone tell me how I get my renamed colour profiles to show with their new names in Display Preferences?

After creating new profiles when calibrating my monitor, I discovered that because the applied names were too long to show up in the display preferences profiles list, they were automatically shortened, thus showing only the prefixed display name part. The result being that they all appear in the list, as having the same name. (I know that holding the pointer over a profile reveals the full profile name, but that is a real pain to have to do each time.)

I discovered that renaming profiles is done via Apple Scripts, but although that changes the name in the Profiles folder (under ColorSync), it has no effect on the names in the display preferences window. Can it be done? If so, how?

Help would be much appreciated.

(I'm using Snow Leopard 10.6.8)
QUOTE Thanks
