Regarding color picking and color management - can someone, please test this?

Please take a few seconds to test this and let me know the result.
This is with CS5 but probably the same with older versions:
Create a new document and zoom out so that the canvas is smaller than the window.
Change the Standard Screen Mode color to Custom and choose some color, for example gray that is 60 for each R,G, and B.
You can do that in the Interface page of the Preferences or by right clicking on the empty area of the window that is beyond the image's canvas.
Using the eyedropper tool pick the color of that empty area
Press Alt + Delete to fill the canvas with that color.
Do you see a difference between the canvas and that area.
I see a slight difference when the color management preview is on and no difference when it is off (soft proofing using Monitor RGB)
I have some ideas but it will be great of someone can make a clear conclusion and explanation for this behavior.

Thanks for that confirmation, Chris.
Same thing with my apps, though with effort I suppose the colors for the controls and background COULD be put through the color management system at startup time...  Lots more complexity though, and that would kind of diverge with the concept of theme selection, not to mention potentially uncovering bugs in the control implementations...  And, if the user has gone out of his way to set everything to a pretty shade of blue, and along comes a color-managed dialog that's gone greenish because that's what those color values REALLY mean, that would likely be reported as a bug just because it's different...
