Has anyone else suffered starting problems after the emissions fix on a Volkswagen Golf Plus?

Has any one else suffered starting problems after the emissions fix on the Volkswagen Golf Plus 1.6 TDI. If so, what action was done to fix the fault as Volkswagen won't give any information regarding updated software?

VAG only seems to have started on the 1.6 NOx emissions 'fix' this year, which is more complicated with the 1.6 TDI. So far, a lot of disaster stories. Some of the engine almost immediately clogging up the EGR.
