Bug or just an idiotic experiment which never happens in "real life"?

My setup: Placed CMYK image; colours = C0M100Y100K0, C0M0Y0K80, one spot colour

Step 1: Fill image with pre-defined 100% K from swatch. Colour of image changes to whatever Publisher calculates. Revert the action.

Step 2: Fill image with 80% K. Colour is completely different from the result of 100% K. Revert the action.

Step 3: Fill image right after another with the red, the spot colour and 80% K. Colour is different from step 2. What is Publisher doing here? Adding colours? I would expect, that once you change the fill, it is like setting the fill to None and then applying the other colour.

Sorry, I was unclear. I didn't mean the source of the colors.

I meant: Exactly what steps are you taking when you say that you "fill the image". I can think of several ways of filling an image, and some of them would perhaps have the effect you have described.

Having a sample file with your image and swatches would also help.
