I had to bring my new Curve SL back to the LBS after only 50km. Same situation - a bad crunching sound from the SA 5 hub after a steep hill climb. I never saw the inside of the hub but the Japanese LBS owner said "something was cracked". He ordered a new hub - Dahon initially sent him the SA 3 speed. Finally, after waiting 3 weeks, I can pick up the bike complete with new SA 5 hub this Thursday. Just to be safe, I think I'm gonna now stay way clear of steep climbs whenever possible.
