Some got dust on their sensor after 2 or 3 days of owning the GR, some got it after 3 months, some after 5000+ shots, some took a year, oh well.... looks like a jeans's pocket is the worst place to put the camera into, which defeats the purpose of my supposedly pocketable camera!
I know dust on sensor is all brand cameras problem but Ricoh being a single fix lens, being a non interchangeable lens, being $700, should have better seal to avoid dust getting into the sensor, the sensor is not even exposed.
Anyway lets see some pictures,
This guy got the worse case scenario of a dust sensor problem, pictures below. I mean look at that dust, it sure look like a worm! taken from http://everydayaperture.com/2014/03/24/the-ricoh-gr-and-the-dust-bunny/
Poor guy, i hope he got it sorted out!
This is the worst dust problem, it looked like a worm or germ. haha
The others have normal dust spots, more below
Here's one from pentax forum,

I'm not here to bash Ricoh, just sharing some information you need to know about the Ricoh GR.
But lets not forget the wonderful photos this camera is capable of..... here's one:-
check out the link above, really nice write up on Ricoh GR.
I know camera is just a tool but looking at the picture above, makes me want the GR badly.
