This is exactly what the recall is regarding. The lock cylinder and tumbler fails, it's usually due to excessive weight hanging from the ignition (i.e. massive key chain), applying a lateral force that the switch isn't designed for and can't handle. The secondary issue is a drivers knee hitting the key and switching the ignition to the off or acc position. The issue is a combination of positioning, angle, and strength. If you've hit the key with your knee hard enough to apply direct shear force to the tumbler, that could've caused the damage to the switch, and is just now manifesting itself after some use. You may want to contact your local dealer about it, they may replace your ign switch assembly for you in leu of the recall replacement until they develop a viable solution. I vaguely remember my local dealer asking if I was having issues with mine yet and saying if/when I do that they would take care of it until they have their solution. Couldn't hurt to inquire, especially with the drivability issues you're having, some of your safety systems can be affected when the problem is occurring and that's the driving force behind the recall...
