Focussing problems with 7D

I work at a Canon dealer... we just got a batch of 7D's in. My first customer picked one up, took it home and came back to exchange it reporting focusing problems. Sure enough, on two bodies we tested, in Single AF Point or Spot AF Point mode, the AF fails on about one out of four shots, sometimes more. We tested this extensively with a variety of lenses and it happened with every lens, even from a tripod with a fixed subject.

However a later serial number of camera (after 101000) did not exhibit this problem nearly to the same extent (though it still happened, it was barely noticeable).

Has anyone else noticed this?
