Have you tried ringing other dealers? the MICU fix is under the Honda recall where the work is done under warranty, and so you will be able to take it to another dealer if you feel your current one is messing you around.
With regards to the battery drain, I was told when I bought the car "that leaving either the lights or wipers on Auto will kill the battery", and so I turn these off whenever I leave the car. I've only had one dead battery situation and that was when I left the window open a little which makes the window switch illuminate, all night.
I know "you shouldn't have to turn the wipers and lights off auto", but for what is effectively a small foible of the CTR, is one I can live with.
I know you're having a pretty crap time of it and its annoying when cars break down but IMO, I think you have a very good car, you luckily haven't had as many problems as others have and your current problems can be remedied quite easily (although you might have to wait up to a couple of weeks).
All isn't lost.
