Hmm, I don't know how much "RAW" the raw format of your Pentax is but I know 
much about Canons raw format CRW/CR2 And there are e.g. no whitebalance, 
color temp or gamma information part of the raw data. You only have metatags 
to give some hints how the photo looks like and the built-in raw-jpg 
converter generates an embedded preview.
But raw means here Its up to you how to interpret the raw data.

Can you put a raw file online so its possible to play with it?
