Not all flour is created equal, especially whole grain flours. Products that were once elastic can become sticky, once light and fluffy muffins can become dense and crumbly without a second thought to the baker's fragile ego that wants nothing more than a delicate, warm pastry first thing in the morning. At a certain point, we are just going to have to accept that whole grain baking is not going to be as easy, or as predictable, as baking with refined flour. I would emphasize that not only is this not a bad thing, with a skilled hand and a little patience, it can be better!
