Oleophobic Coating Wearing Off Of 3GS Screen?

While self-baking iPhone 3GSs turned out not to be cause for alarm, a new issue with the 3GS is being reported by multiple users that might be a little harder to explain away. User Samasas Traum says the oleophobic coating on his iPhone’s screen has started to wear off of the device, due to his frequent playing of Flick Fishing [$0.99 | App Store].

The game involves rubbing your finger in a circle on the area of the screen shown above, which explains why the damage is just in that one area. He posted the following three pictures on the Apple Talk forum.
