Thanks, this online validator shows the same problem.

So you do not consider this as a (newly introduced) bug, but rather a fix or improvement compared to the old version, right?

When I look at and the comment (written at 31/Oct/14 19:15) which says

"Please open a new issue if the current problem "Invalid Color space, The operator "RG" can't be used with CMYK Profile",

I am wondering if this new jira entry exists!?
