I have a Breezer 20" folding bike (supposedly a licensed Dahon P8 frame?) that also has fairly significant play in the hinge pin. My solution was to shim the gap between the clamped frame.

full album for those interested...

The material is 1mm LEXAN. One custom-cut piece on either side of the hinge. It seems to have solved my hinge play issue for the time being. The clamp adjustment screw/pin does seem to loosen itself over time, but a little adjustment every now and then ensure the clamping force is what it should be.
