One other thing (maybe I just don't know how to adjust to it) but when you shoot panos at night with yellow lights around, your white balance will change on every picture. I had some serious troubles with a night shot and the sky changed to different blues all the time. I am sure I just didn't adjust the white balance on every shot but that would still be pretty hard to get it right on every shot.
If your white balance is on auto it will be changing constantly - and like you said it's worse at night - you can get away with it outside during daylight as the predominant light source is the sun.
You need to lock your white balance so it is consistent - just like the aperture and exposure. You just need to either pick the best one (tungsten normally works okay) or if your camera can do it (most slrs can) use the setting where you can set the WB from a previous picture - take a test shot and then use that. Your camera then uses that color data until you change it. Works really well in most cases.
