Normal for interchangeables?
While knitting with my new KP Options needles this morning (silver plated.. I still may get the Harmony Wood.. not sure), anyway, I noticed that the needles keep coming slightly unscrewed. Is this normal for interchangeable circulars, or could there be something wrong with mine? (and I did use the key to make sure they were on tightly).

TIA for any info!

You're not getting them tight enough. Use the little key that came with them, and grasp the needle itself with one of those rubber grippy things like you use to open jar lids. That will ensure a good snug connection and then they shouldn't loosen during knitting.

Be careful about not pulling too much on the cables as I've had several of them pull out of the fitting.
