    I have no clue, but here's how I fix it in Illustrator 9.0

    1. Select the entire image
    2. Select "Filter" from the menu
    3. Select "Colors"
    3. Select "Convert to CMYK"

    Now you can change to the colors you want.

    You may need to select the image, right mouse and choose "ungroup" to change individual sections.

    I'm new to Illustrator, but I figured this out by trial and error.

    Hope this helps!

    ....an easier way to do it is to select the object, select either its Fill or its Stroke, then bring up the Color palette (Shift-F6). In the palette's flyout menu (under the little black triangle in the upper-right corner of the palette) select the color space you want to use for your Fill (Stroke): Grayscale, RGB, HSB, CMYK, Web safe RGB.

    Another option is to Shift-click the color map area at the bottom of the Color palette (the horizontal rectangle below the sliders in the Color palette, filled with the actual color space representation). Every Shift-click will switch to the next color space in the list.

    Check color palette options- switches automatically to grayscale sometimes. More at link below:
