Interesting Adrian, I've seen a similar problem myself when recording
out to film footage graded to a cold look.
What monitor/projector are you using for grading? ...  6500 K whitepont?
I ask because I think every time I've noticed this issue grading had been done 
on 6500 K monitors/projectors. Film projection is done with xenon lamps where
whites are 5500 K. Don't you think this whitepoint shift could be the problem?
Are you grading and then recording out linear files or log files?
