ERROR: Gimp is not able to open a PSD file in CMYK mode

When I try, gimp gives me the error:
Error loading PSD file: Unsupported color mode: CMYK

Opening this file is only possible with a conversion to rgb.
Use ImageMagick with the -colorspace switch ie.

convert myfile.psd -colorspace rgb myfile.xcf

ImageMagick is available also for windows and in portable release
