The adherent cells look spread out, as if they might be fibroblasts.
Not the kind of thing that can be dislodged by gentle pipetting (this I
already see with my Sp2/0 cells and I would consider it to be normal).

I guess they are just sticky after they have been fused. However, I can't speak to the viability issue you bring up. The one's in the media are alive and I increase the numbers by getting more dislodged from the plastic.
