The 'sips' command seems to do the trick (from Terminal):

sips -d profile --deleteColorManagementProperties 

If you could try that and see if you could still reproduce the issue 
that would be great.

The engine still applies color management to all images (as the screen 
buffers on macOS generally expect sRGB matched image data) - so at the 
very least this will determine whether its an issue with the color 
profile on Mojave, or something else.

Either way, if you could file a bug with the offending image(s) and a 
recipe for reproduction (although it sounds like its sporadic) we can 
try and figure out what the actual issue is.

Warmest Regards,


P.S. *Hopefully* stripping the color profile will at least be a 
workaround if it works!
