Camera Raw/Lightroom: ORF white balance inconsistent

I have a series of ORF files shot as a timelapse. Processing them in LR gives noticeable color flickering. I picked out two pictures that were shot within one minute. They can be found under:

Importing them into LR results in quite different histogramms.

When converting them into TIFF files with the Olympus Viewer 3 and then importing into LR gives the correct result.
Hence I think there is a problem in the adobe RAW converter regarding ORF files.

Also, a detour via Adobe DNG Converter gives the same wrong result.
