    Sounds like you got a screen leak. It's fine but many people have taken their iPods back because it's somewhat annoying to look at. If you don't mind, you can keep it.

    could it potentially be a hazard in the future?

    i had the same problem with my previous iPod touch. i went to the genius bar to demand a new one but when they talked to official apple service guy they said that this is common in all units. But the owner of that apple store was nice and got me a new one =]
    it has a tiny tiny bit of screen leak but its much better then before.

    It isn't a problem/hazard. It's more of a cosmetic thing. Don't worry about it unless it really bugs you. My brother took his back though, he got annoyed of it.

    leak makes it sound bad, like dust/humidity will be more accessible to the innards of my sexy?

    It's a possibility that dust will get in. If you're worried either get a case for it or take it back and get a new one.

    Cases and screen protectors make it worse. My ipod screen is full of dust because i have a case and screen protector on where as many of my friends without these don't have any dust.
