Conundrum – CMYK psd files in GIMP

Before you think I’ve come up with a solution to this problem, understand that I have not. I’m just frustrated by the way I’m going to have to do things. So, I download a bunch of free images, vector packs, psd files that people have put out on the web for designers. The problem comes when the items I’ve downloaded are saved in the CMYK colorspace instead of RGB. Gimp will not open them and even using the convert option with ImageMagick on the command line, I’ve not been able to get a clean enough file to do anything with. So, it appears that I’ll have to actually open the files in photoshop (in windows) and then change the colorspace there, save the file, then re-open in GIMP. If anyone has another idea, I’m open for suggestions.
