My guess is you're mixing color temperatures of ambient light vs. bounce flash. If the ambient light is tungsten and it's stronger than your camera's Auto WB is calculating, it will be more yellow than you expect. I'm guessing the camera knows you're shooting flash but it doesn't know you're bouncing it, effectively weakening its strength compared to the ambient light.

I shoot RAW, never use Auto WB, and don't have your camera, so I could be wrong. But that's my understanding of how mixing ambient, flash, and Auto WB works.
