Fact or Fiction problems with the blueing of the XD pistols

so I'm a member of a few boards and have visted a few different gun shops in my area. as a results an SA-XD sub-compact is on my list but I'm concerned about a rumour relating to the finish on the blued guns turning sorta brown and almost sorta rusting.

Is there any truth to this? Does the XD require more care then lets say my Steyr or my nitroned Sig?

Just wanted feeedback from actual owners rather than second or third hand information?

I figured what the hey. I am getting one with a stainless slide and sending out to Sig to have their Niton finish put on it. What can I say, I am lazy about cleaning, I live in a hi-humidity coastal area, and I believe in overkill.
