DCT software update?

I've noticed that my new (to me) car has a fairly bad case of DCT lag - more specifically, after baking at slow speed, I cannot accelerate for a second or so, no matter what I do with accelerator.

From the forum posts, it seems that this is a known issue, which is to some extent addressed by software upgrades. How can I find out if the software on my car is the latest one and this is it or if I should ask dealer for a software upgrade? It is a 2009 model (manufactured December 08) and it did not have any software updates, according to the maintenance records.

I already scheduled a visit to a dealer, but then though if there is nothing they can do, why waste a day... The service department seems to be surprisingly clueless about the issue.
