G11 Auto White Balance Tungsten Lighting

I've been busy learning the G11 and I think it's great. However, I wish auto white balance for indoor shots, in particular, tungsten lighting, was better. When I need to take a quick shot indoors, I would rather just set the camera to auto and take the shot. I know about p-mode, white balance, etc., but sometimes things happen too quickly.

I called Canon today and discussed auto white balance with a support rep. He said they have no known issues with auto white balance on the G11. I know there are others here that feel auto white balance on the G11 doesn't work very well. It's been fine for me outdoors, but poor on indoor shots. The Canon tech said that auto white balance is optimized for outdoor shots.

If you feel auto white balance could be better, you might also want to call/email Canon so they can begin to see other people aren't very satisfied with it and maybe they will do something about it.
