Arthur,

It's hardly a "suggestion", but a well discussed problem, according to users
of this camera who post on public discussion boards, and from pictures I've
seen demonstrating this problem.

Even a sensor problem has a high potential to simply be "fixed" (to some
degree at least) with firmware, which doesn't mean it's not a sensor problem
in the first place.

BTW, where did you get the information that it is a firmware issue, and has
not a thing to do with the sensor?  I had not heard that, and would be
interested in the information.

> To quote some  "Austinisms"...

Sorry, but I can not take credit for being the first one to simply ask for
substantiation or clarification of a claim.  I typically never mind
providing some basis for claims I make in a productive technical discussion,
and typically, most other people, who actually have some basis for their own
claim, don't mind either.  Most people who are interested in understanding a
topic just don't blindly believe a claim that does not fit with their
understanding.  Hence, the request for more information.  That isn't an
insinuation about anyone at all, so don't take it as such, merely a
statement of common protocol in a technical discussion.

>From the SD-9 discussion boards, posted by people who actually use the
camera, it is posted that this is a well known issue, and there are many
images posted on the web that display this problem.
