I posted about the same (or similar) symptom of clutch pedal 
pulsation. No one had much info to contribute, as I recall. In my car 
the throwout bearing was new (within the previous 10K miles I had 
replaced the bearing while the tranny was out for other reasons), and 
the clutch itself was about 40K miles old. I decide to try to forget 
about it, and now it's about 3 or 4 years later. I've either 
forgotten about it (gotten used to it?)-- or the pulsation has 
actually diminished. The clutch action is still fine.
