See DPR front page:

"We will also develop a modified sensor, which will more universally resolve the ‘white disc’ blooming effect in all modes. We are working hard to make this new sensor available from late May 2012."

That doesn't really tell us if present owners of the X10 will get to repair/exchange their cam for an orbless one when the time comes.

They'll surely put the new sensor in a new camera to avoid confusion.

True, we don't know.
But, if FujiFilm develops a new sensor because of the orb issue...

It will be difficult to explain to X10 owners why they should be happy with their X10.
I think a sensor or camera replacement will take place in May/June.

Good news.
Thanks for the information.
I'm confident that my camera shop of choice will fix it for me.
I've got my Nikon D300 exchanged without any question.

Well , referring to the Fuji Statement I've asked the Fuji Service Center UK to replace my camera in May under warranty.
Now I wonder what kind of reply I'll get !!

After they stop laughing?

Well I do hope they will replace your camera or its sensor. That would be the real resolution to this issue.
