MacBook Pro Inconsistent Clicks

I just recently picked up one of the new MacBook Pro's. I absolutely love it. It is my first new laptop in about 4-5 years and the lack of Java6 for the original 32bit Core Duo chips was really starting to put a hamper on my development. I have also decided that I want to learn how to write iPhone apps, so my full hard disk just wasn't cutting it anymore.

That said, the new glass trackpad misses clicks. I click and it just doesn't register as a click. This is starting to drive me nuts. One blog posting suggests that it is a software issue. I'm going to use it for a little while longer, but I think this week I'm going to call Apple Support and see what the deal is. Anyone else having these same problems?

Update: Found some discussion in the Apple forums . Seems a lot of people are having these problems. Sigh.

Update2: This is definitely a software issue. All clicks get registered when I run Windows XP in vmware fusion for Mac.
