Is the Carbon X1 "intermittent left button" problem still a thing?

Brand new 5th gen X1 Carbon here.  The left button seems like it misses a click every 10th or 20th time, particularly if I click on the right side, where your thumb rests naturally.

 

I found a couple of threads indicating that this was a known problem with previous generations.  ("Known" in the sense that a Lenovo tech confirmed it was a design flaw - too wide of a button with only one microswitch underneath.)

 

Was this issue fixed, and maybe I just have a bad unit?  Or is it an ongoing problem?  The reason I ask is that I'm still within the holiday return period, and I don't want to try to have the machine repaired, only to fall outside the return period and discover that I have to live with the problem forever.
