`assumed_gamma srgb` is never a good idea. If you're using `srgb` for
the pigment and `File_Gamma=srgb` you should be fine in terms of input
colour = output colour. If you're only using `emission` or `ambient`,
the `assumed_gamma` setting should actually be irrelevant.

with v3.7 you should better use

    finish { ambient 0 emission 1 diffuse 0 reflection 0}
