Saving to PNG changes gamma to 0.4545

I've got similar problem to this thread:

I saved PNG without checked "Save gamma" but it saves the file with gamma set to 0.4545. I can see it while working with xloadimage:
Boot_800x600.png is 800x600 PNG image, color type RGB, 8 bit, file gamma 0.4545

It's too dark (other applications ignore this settings). I'm using GIMP 2.6.11. Newer version is not much possible (as it is unstable in my linux distribution). but if you're sure that newer version resolves this bug, I will gladly upgrade.

Can someone tell why this bug is still active even if it is known from older versions and how can I avoid it?
