New IST-DS and red pixel (:< !

Hi,
I got my new IST-DS yesterday and did spend some time testing it.

I like the camera so far and would be a happy camper if there was not the dreaded red pixel (stuck pixel) in all my pictures. I have one (or maybe two) very close to the center of every picture I take. The iso/exposure or the type of shot (wide or tele) seem not to matter. I have always a red pixel(s) in the middle of every picture :

I have till next friday to make a decision on whether to "eat" the %10 restocking fee and send the DS back to buydig but definitely would hate to send the camera back because of this.

I already send a e-mail to pentax and will try to phone them tomorrow.

Has anybody else has a similar problem ? How is Pentax service ? Are they quick in rectifying this kind of things or do they play the "keep them on hold till they give up!" game ?

Any help/suggestion on what to do in this situation would be greatly appreciated !

Thanks,
Mehmet
