Default Acrobrat 6 and RGB

Got a weird one which wasted hours today: client supplied Press PDFs from PageWrecker, looked OK in Acro 6 Pro (high res, no OPI, fonts embedded, crop marks and bleed, thank you very much). Clicked Show Separations in the menu, and we saw CMYK - only CMYK, no spots. Did a matchprint through the RIP and ugh! Looked 'orrible, it did. Scratched head, had a cuppa, rebooted, reprinted, still looked very flat indeed. Recalibrated RIP, shouted at the cat, tried again, still pants.

So, looked at it in Acro 5 where we have the PowerUp PDF plug-in which showed that the images were RGB. Still in 5, double-clicked on an image to open it in Photoshop which confirmed it really was. Jumped up and down and swore a bit (quite a lot, actually), then got my artworker to spend the rest of the day opening each image in Photoshop converting to CMYK and resaving the PDFs.

Can you configure Acro 6 (PC and Mac) to open images in Photoshop like wot you can do in 5, like? Also, can you set Acro 6 to show RGB when you display separations?
