Default 3rd gear problem in 2010 Accord 4 cyl manual

About six weeks ago I bought a 2010 Accord 4 cyl manual transmission with about 22k miles. Since then, I've had intermittent problems upshifting into third. The gear shift won't move fully into place, and I have to be aware of it or I'll get some grinding when the clutch is let out. The first couple of times I thought I was just not being careful enough, but now I'm certain that the shifting is a transmission problem. I brought it to the local Honda service and they think it's damage from the previous owner (I've been driving M/T for decades, and had a 2005 Accord M/T for the past 6 years with no problems.) The non-Honda dealer who sold me the car thinks that their own techs would have noticed the problem, and it would be hard to cause in a young transmission, so they think Honda's warranty should cover it. Of course, I'm in the middle.
Looking around, I see that Honda has a TSB for other models pre-2009 with similar problems, so I'm suspicious that there is a defect which hasn't yet been acknowledged.

I would appreciate suggestions on how to deal with the opposing dealers, and also whether others have seen this problem in more recent Hondas.
