And another question. I see that darktable uses a WB value of 5000K if it is 
set to use the camera's white balance. dcraw with the -w option uses the same 
channel multiplicator values, digikam as well using libraw. I do not know how 
to set dcraw to show the white balance temperature it uses.

UFRAW however shows 4581K + 1,31 Green. The channel multiplicators are the 

How come these white balances are different? Using UFRAW's values seems to 
help against the yellow taint.
