I too encountered the underexposed "problem" when I first got my camera at the end of October 2002. I have not made any modification to the camera (no new firmware) since I got it and I don't use custom curves. But I do shoot RAW for the most part and in manual mode now. I've gotten to the point where the post processing modification, if any, are minimal. Here is an example of two pics which did not have any color/staturation/level adjustments what so ever. The first picture was shot with available lighting in a classroom setting. The second picture was shot outside at around 3:30pm with full sun. For the 2nd picture I use an polirizer filter and dialed the exposure down to -.7EV when I took the picture. Both pictures have had shaperning adjusting since I had sharpening off in the camera, as I do most of the time.

The transportation section in my site contains a set of picture which had minimal adjustments processing. The only adjustment that most had was a 2 sec change of the curves since I purposely underexposed the pictures due to the intensity of the sun.

Update: I wanted to add this specific link also http://meszar.us/photography/?picturetype=Newest&picturenumber=0003&picturepath=/photography/newest/pics/
This picture didn't have any post processing modification but cropping. The white balance setting used was PREset and measured against the white wall. The light was available sun light inside the house.
