cbsel, there is a period of time/miles on car when the DCT should "break in" too. Usually after the 1000 miles you should no longer experience what you experience now (or a lot more less). It is not the fact that DCT "learns" your driving style during this period, but the DCT "learns" to shift. This is why I advise you to play with the it and not keep it at steady speeds. Change while driving from D to S and then back again after some miles, play even with the rocker-shifter. This way, the DCT will become smoother and more responsive. I did this with mine and almost all the time it is responsive and great (acting like a real manual tranny with an electronic clutch). I did experienced some "revs" when changing from driving at a steady speed for a while to pushing hard on the DCT, it takes a couple of seconds to respond, but the same is for an normal automatic tranny. So, this is my advice to you. If after the 1000 miles or so, you see no changes, go talk to your dealer !
