Anyone had a successful resolution of D800 AF problem?

My D800 is one of those which fails to focus accurately with the outer AF sensors. I sent sample images to Nikon, and they eventually replied with an offer to evaluate the camera at a service center.

Has anyone actually had this problem successfully repaired? If so, do you know what was done? Are they providing replacement bodies? Or are they stone-walling, and telling customers that the AF sensors are operating within "acceptable tolerances"?

I am trying to decide whether to send in the D800 for service, or return it to the dealer and wait for Nikon to sort out the manufacturing issues before buying another one.
