Default '11 WRX Burning Clutch Smell in Reverse

Hey guys, I tried a search, but did not come up with much. I have a '11 WRX and almost every morning when I back out of my driveway I get a burning clutch smell. I also get it on the occasional reverse out of a parking spot when I am out and about. If memory serves me correctly, I could have sworn I read the '09/'10's were experiencing some of this. I did get it a tad on my '10, but not as bad. This is my 5th WRX and, besides the '10, I have never experienced such. I have never had the issue on any of the other manuals I have owned. I have not changed my driving style, so it cannot be due to improper usage. I do have to feather the clutch a bit due where I am backing out from, but even that should not cause such a bad smell. Has anyone experienced this? Suggestions?
