Have you set Darktable to import or export changing the file format with expectation? – Ringtail Feb 25 '12 at 21:29

You have probably stumble upon a issues with the embedded ICC profile "Darktable sRGB" and the image viewer that not supports the profile, you can try strip the image from this embedded profile using:

exiftool -icc_profile= file.jpg

Let me know if this solves your issue and what imageviewer that failed to view the file.
