This can happen when dithering is enabled. PNG compression deals quite
good with large areas of uniform color, dithering can spoil this by
effectively creating areas with lot of differently colored pixels.

You can choose the dithering method when you convert to indexed. "None"
yields smaller PNG files but might have stronger impact on the image

Hope this helps,
