I think that you will just have to live with it.
 I forgot to mention, that this problem can also result from the rings  
aligning their gaps. (You do know that the rings do rotate around the piston?).  
But this usually occurs on one piston at a time and results is a very minimum  
amount of oil burning. Also oil burning will continue while running until the  
rings loose the alignment. I don't know the speed of ring rotation but it must 
 be very slow otherwise wear would be accelerated.
