I find the bear in particular a bit yellow in the SD10 shot

I checked this specially. Twice.

Looking at 20d shot I was completely sure it is right and SD10 is wrong. But after examination of the real scene SD10 happened to be right.

an overall yellow cast to the scene as well.

can't be overall cast as all whites are whites.
if there is some cast then it exists in real.

That is almost purely due to lens color balance, not sensors.

I used Custom balance on SD10. Shouldn't it deal with lens color balance?

Well then you'd lean toward the same pink cast in the SD10 shot
with a 50/1.4 attached. However you want to characterize the
difference, the difference that you are noting is not atypical of
the lens change alone.

I am just noting it by the way, this is not the subject of my test right now. I wanted to note it specially for eliminating any "yellow cast" suspicions for SD10.
