Uneven brake pad ware

Recently, I had excessive wear on my right front pads, Perf Fric 01 race pads on stock calipers. The other three wheels were showing "normal" wear, consistant with my track use. My Bimmer store checked the calipers, and determined the pins were not allowing the caliper to slide without difficulty, most likely not releasing completely, causing the wear on the right pads. The pins were removed, found okay (not bent) and did not require replacing, only lubrication, and appear to be functioning properly now. It is suspected that heat was the culprit. Will be at the track next week, sporting new PC front pads, so we will see. Has anyone else experienced simular problem(s)?
