Replied to your post over at weightweenies a few minutes ago. Here it is again:

I remember reading that one should not re-check torque settings as it could do more harm than good. As I recall, a tightener has a maximum clamping power at a specified torque setting. Once a tightener is torqued, there will be some "loosening" of the bolt head, not threads, even though the torque level is correct. When you retorque, you are in essence exceeding the recommended torque value. So, if you want to check the torque settings, then loosen all bolts first, then bring them back up to the specific torque level.
