why does pastry cream get gluey when you make it?

I have been making pastry cream successfully for years now, and all of a sudden it is going gluey on me. I have a feeling it is either the pan (I used a wider pan, which would cause more stirring) or maybe it's because I added the sugar to the egg yolk (grad.) and then added the flour to that before tempering.
