It isn't a software issue as it is intentional because they want a faster refresh. Forcing you to do the full refresh like when you're reading a book would be annoying if you're trying to scroll down a webpage.

With the current technology in eInk screens, you can't have everything. You either have fast refresh but the potential for artifacts or you have a slower full refresh with no artifacts. You can't have instant refresh with no artifacts at least not yet. The eInk screen inside the Kindle 3 and other latest generation eBook readers is the new eInk Pearl screen and that has significantly improved the refresh speed already.
