Yep, washed the hatch today and it was dusty on the rear b the time I drove 1/2 mile home.
Between washes, I just windex the rear glass and wipe the rest with a CA Car Duster.

It's not just a hatch thing.

I have the 3D Carbon rear spoiler and I get really cool modern art dust designs on my back window.... <G>, it's only modestly cleaner than the plain stock rear spoiler.
