sram shifter-no single cog downshift

I decided to replace the cable as I had run out of adjustment on the barrels on my force shifters. Everything went well till I noticed I couldn't shift one cog at a time when going up the cassette. Now it shifts only 2 at a time, not 1 or 3. Sure I can shift up 2 and then down 1 but what happened? Is it suddenly time to rebuild or did something get gunked up? Anyone have this happen?

Well I took it to my lbs and they fixed it in 10 min. Apparently the housing bend near the rd was just a little too tight and the dust must have bunched up somewhere. I'm glad I buy stuff from him regularly. He fixed it on the spot and only charged me $6.
