Except that I was already working in 709 space.  Yes the EXR is linear,
and was interpreted as such and converted into 709 and looks correct.

The DPX on the other hand was tagged as already being 709, yet I had to
manually "undo" the gamma to get it right in 709, which is why it seems
to me like it was applied twice.  It should have just come in correct to
begin with and look like the EXR snapshot did, if it really was 709.
