IR Conversions & Dust

I just got my K10D converted to IR with an 830nm filter thanks to Spencer's Camera. My question is has anyone with an IR converted camera noticed more dust problems? I figure that the new filter probably does not have the anti-stick coating of the original. This might lead to more dust problems since the dust won't come off as easily with the sensor shake or even blower bulbs? Any thoughts or observations of your own?

BTW, here's a couple of test shots:

When I bought an IR converted K100, the sensor was filthy I even found hairs inside the camera. I don't think they are carried out in dust free environments.
You're probably right about the sensor coating as well. Something you'll just have to live with.
