iDrive knob problems

My wife complained that sometimes the iDrive would seem to fire spurious joystick-left events from time to time. The most common case was when she was using the knob to enter text in a search field. She would get a couple of letters in, then the display would unexpectedly jump back to the previous screen.

I had assumed she was accidentally moving the knob left, as she tends to be twitchy with that sort of thing. But this weekend it happened to me several times. On one occasion a very light touch on the top of the knob fired a joystick-left.

Has anyone else seen this? I assume we need to take it into the dealer for repair?
