I really don't understand why something like this suddenly turns up though on a very small % of devices and not on others. I'd be tempted to see if I could return the Touch if a reset doesn't fix it and it drives you nuts.
It would be interesting to know if any of the affected users have tried a factory reset prior to re-install and whether it made a difference...
There must be something different with those devices.
