I've just tried the program a couple more times and that's what I've found:
when fullscreen setting is enabled and after going back to window mode
the program window remains active, gamma setting *does* work.
But if you switch the window to background (I did that to see
'setting gamma to...' messages in xterm) gamma setting doesn't change.

Anyway since this seems to be already fixed in 4.2.0 I agree that it's 
not a problem.

Sorry for the haste with the first email.

Regards, pke.
