I'll have to tighten them with the torque wrench and then see what happens. I wonder if they were loose like that when I brought the bike home from the LBS, or if they loosened up through use afterward.

I have little confidence in the mechanic at that LBS due to other issues I have had with the bike, so I wouldn't be surprised if they weren't properly tightened in the first place. Hopefully the cranks aren't ruined at this point.
