A few other articles I've read suggest it's a problem with loss of acceleration rather than an increase in acceleration as The Times states?

Eitherway thats going to be a massive loss for VW having to replace all of these DSG's!

Ooooo that's interesting I wonder if the recall will come over here first the US . Now china with any luck we'll get one as well
That's my biggest concern ATM it's ok changing gear in D & S when you let it change but soon as I use the paddles or stick under hard acceleration it jerks like mad ...
Even though its had the oil changed and ecu reset :-(

worth calibrating the DSG as per the thread below?

R32OOL, I would strongly recommend re calibrating the DSG, but make sure you follow the 'define drive' procedure to the letter and then give it a good blast for 50 or 60 miles after that. Make sure the gearbox oil is upto the required temp before you do the recalibration.

Good luck and let us know how you get on.
