X-10 canvas-like texture in dark areas

Hi everyone, this is my first post here, although I've been posting on the Pentax SLR forum for some years. In need for a take-anywhere/travel camera I had been reading this forum for some time looking at the Fuji X-10, which appealed to me particularly for the viewfinder, manual zoom, bright lens, raw capability, and compact size. I also had good memories of my first digital camera, a FujiFilm MX-1700Z, which served me very well. However I was a bit put off by the orbs, and the "quirks" reported by some, so I was still undecided when... my wife got me one for Christmas!

So I've been using it for a few days and it is indeed a little quirky, but it's a great little camera, I'm getting to know it better everyday and I think I'm going to be taking it almost everywhere!

I do have a concern however. When shooting jpg L the photos display a peculiar canvas-like texture in the darker areas. Here is an example to illustrate my point:

100% crop 1 - look at the blue leg chair and area to the left:

100% crop 2 - see the wall behind the candle:

Has anyone seen anything similar? I haven't seen this on any images posted here or in the DPR samples. Any feedback would be highly appreciated. Thanks in anticipation!
