Yes, my x100 (original) has this problem. It's irritating, but since I use only back-button focus, it doesn't bother me enough to spend money on getting it fixed.
I once tried repeatedly turning the focus ring back-and-forth along its full travel for about 10 minutes (very tedious), in the hope of loosening it, but to no avail.
Just in case you were considering it, I certainly wouldn't
try any kind of lubricant - this could turn the camera into a brick.
