[Gimp-user] Blues look purple?

For whatever reason, blues are coming out as purple-ish in GIMP. I
tried drawing with a straight blue brush to test - 255 blue, no other
values, and it's still purple. It's not a monitor issue, or I'd be
seeing those blues elsewhere, but the colour selector is

I tried the same with solid green and red, but neither of them seem
affect by whatever's happening to the blue colours.

Has anyone run into this problem before? I do art commissions so this
is kind of affecting my work.

Strangely enough, you screenshot looks ok here. 

However I can reproduce the effect. Have you checked Edit -> Preferences ->
Color Management.

If it is on, try turning it off. Here the effect comes from the monitor profile.

Willing to bet, if you colour pick your 'purple' paint, it comes out RGB 0,0,255
