Would you share with us, where you got this wisdom from?
My SGS works perfectly well regarding GPS performance for more than 6 months now not depending on my current location: US west coast and Hawaii it worked great as well as in Italy and various parts of Germany. Fix is usually the within seconds (presuming free sight to the sky). Also the android version had no influence: I started with stock 2.2, upgrading to various 2.2.1, 2.3.3, 2.3.4 and now 2.3.5 (also with different custom kernels).
Where and when did you having GPS problems get your SGS? Maybe there is batch with faulty soldered GPS antennas. However, I don't see a reason why the SGS should have a bad GPS performance in general.
