My EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 IS lens has developed serious lens creep. Is this normal or are seals bad or ? I don't recall it being an issue at first.

Does it happen? You bet. But is it normal? No. However most zoom lenses of this type will creep sooner or later if you use it a lot.
Depending on how old it is, you may get Canon warranty to service it. They can tighten it up. My 24-105mm f4 L does that too.
I just live with it as this lens has seen a lot of duty.
This is actually a pretty nice lens. I was thoroughly impressed with the one I got to try.

They should solve the problem for you. They also make good camoflage for the red rings on L lenses when I don't want to advertise what I'm carrying.
