White balance seem to change

I was shooting dancers on stage last night with my new K20D. The lighting was constant, although the back corners were darker. I had the camera's WB set to Tungsten and shooting Manual Mode. But as the evening went on, there were occasional shots with a lot of yellow cast to them as though the WB setting wasn't applied. The EXIF only shows Custom. I was shooting with the DA*50-135. Any thoughts?

I think I may have found it. Custom setting #12 - WB Adjustable Range was set to 1. This allows the camera to apply what it thinks even when the source is specified. I'll set it to 2-Fixed to what I set it.
