For me I nearly always center the AF point before moving around. I'll push the AF selection button, push the joystick straight in and then move the AF point. It may not be the fastest but it works for me.
When you're moving the AF point from the centre, are you able to consistently move it in a 45deg direction? For example, if I'm trying to move from the centre point to the upper left point, I'd like to take the shortest route rather than having to go two clicks up and three clicks left. My other bodies let me do this although they have fewer AF points to choose from.
I phoned Canon technical support about it earlier today. The rep. I spoke to tried it on a body there and said he found it quite tricky also so I suspect it's a software quirk rather than a hardware fault.
