Here's the main thread:

Did they acknowledge that this is a general problem and carried it out at firm's expense?

A couple days after I thought I got it working again, it completely messed up and would always close the aperture all the way.

So I sent it in under extended warranty and just got it back from Precision Camera today for this issue.

They replaced the Diaphragm Control Box.
After 3 years of use, my white K-x was diagnosed with the same problem, but it would cost me around usd250 to fix it here in Brazil, so I got a K-5 II when I had the chance. My K-x is now on display on the shelf and is rarely used.
