a57 AEL button bug

Not sure if anyone else has experienced this, or perhaps its even well reported - but i just ran into it so i thought i'd ask if another a57 owner could check this out.

I have my AEL button set to white balance functionality. I typically have always shot in aperture priority, but have found as i've adapted to the EVF i'm venturing into manual mode much more frequently then i ever use to with my a230 and a500, as i really have a good idea of what the shot will look like and can adjust the settings quickly to get what i want before i shoot.

I just noticed that the AEL button doesn't work for the programable function i have it set to (white balance) in manual, but does in the semi-auto modes. It doesn't throw up an error or anything, it just does nothing when i push it. I'm on the latest firmware 1.03.

Could another a57 user check this out and let me know what you find?

thanks in advance,
