I know at least two. They didn't complain on the forums because they
don't know there is such thing. You describe it correctly: "you just
press it and then relax your finger." The point is that between these
two events (press and relax) different people (unconciously) make a
pause. It's hard to measure but it may be enough to make a long press
out of an intended short one.
