Do other owners all report the same problem or only a few? it may be that all but a few wouldn't even notice a stabilization problem.

IS is definitively working on my X10, but it's maybe not the most forgiving. To check whether IS is working on your camera or not do the following:

Set IS to Continuous (1 or 2) and watch how that changes the stability of live view on the screen compared to turning IS off. To make it easier set focus to manual, do a quick AF focus via the AEL/AFL button and then turn the focus ring one notch back and forth. The zoomed view of manual focus is very revealing about IS.
