I'm not able to reproduce the issue the issue.
Can you reproduce the issue with any image or just with this one?

I tested three random images I pulled from google, all of them have the same problem. The zip file contains the blend file I used (which has the script in it) and the original three images used, as well as what they turned out after running the script 10 times on them.

Any suggestions on how to proceed?

@Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) Color management transform is saved. But I guess this is expected because the saving is done by save_render?

(Actually I think this has already been reported before, but I can't find the ticket ATM)

Use save instead of save_render, the result is not expected to be the same when applying view transforms, dithering, etc.
