Superlight Paint Issues

I've got an 01' Superlight in metallic blue and the paint seems to have a poor bond to the metal. In areas that arent subject to dirt slung from the ground or tires the paint flakes or bubbles down to the bare metal. The rear shock mount gussets on the bottom side of the top bar are flaking and when I took off the front deraileur for service a couple days ago the paint arund the deraileur clamp had bubbled up and fallen off. Makes me wish I'd sprung for the anodized version. I'm guessing these bikes were powder coated?

Is this a common problem with the year and paint color?
Any recourse from SC?
Recommendations on good touch up paint?
