Yes Black KnightI agree with JimC, it's blown highlights BUT it's interestingthat PPL v2 andSilkyPix cope in default mode hereas Adobe ACR & Lightroom don't - just a word of warning to the wise.
It's probably just a bug (clipping warning color left on during the conversion versus just for the preview would be my best guess). It may only be occuring with a unique combination of settings. I'd let the developers know about it if you can replicate the settings you were using and give them a reproducable issue to fix.

So my problem is - when batch converting in excess of 100 images which one to you choose ensure that this (or similar) problem(s) don't exist.

Maybe I'm just lazy but I don't want to tweak each and every one to obtain a set of working JPEGs.

PPL v2 maybe produce converted JPEGs that are a tad over saturated BUT it doesn't screw things up like Lightroom.
You don't have to tweak each photo individually.

In the library mode:
- select all images to be processed
- right click, Develop Settings>Auto Tone

This should apply automatic adjustments to each indivdual photo.

or even better, make a new preset (click '+' on the left panel in Develop mode)
Check Auto Tone and save.
Then the next time you import your photos choose your preset you just made and they will be adjusted automatically.

Thanks for the tip - it certainly works and no 'blush' marks on the daffs.

I guess that I've been used to PPL v2 as those RAW conversions are a lot more saturated which by comparison,the Lightroom Auto converted files are slightly bland - maybe more natural.

It certainly allows for a batch conversion without having to adjust each image individually.

FWIW, I'm seeing threads pop-up elsewhere about a problem like this using Adobe Camera Raw 3.7 in PS CS2, also.

So, it doesn't look like it's unique to Lightroom (other Adobe products may do the same thing if the highlights are being clipped with some Pentax raw files).
