I once have the same thing on my d-cam. Later I notice it was because I had some oil on the lens (finger print). The spots are moisture droplet formed between the oil and lens. Well that is the case for me anyway.
Hope it helps.

....hmmmm let me share my experience...
I'm a S10 user and i would like to shae with you guys on the "mysterious spots" that you see.
The spots are actually dust or pollen particles in the air at the location that yo take the photos. This have been a discussion long time ago in www.philashkey.com (now known as www.dpreview.com).
Well, one particular behaviour of the compact digital camera, that the flash is located at about the same plane as the flash and this will light up minute dust particle and thus forming those glowing unfocused dust in - dust which are immediate to your camera.
This may also happen in a aircon room which may have dusty air-con. in some cases, it may also occur in waterfall area where there is mist.
I was in Tianjin (China) on one of the evenings and was in one of the streets in the evening a was taking some photos and realise the dots. Took the camera away from my face nd took a shot in the general direction to the front while looking over the camera, and was surprise to see dust particles in the air illumiated by the flash.
So dont worry, its not ghost nor is there any problem with your camera.
