I second all of that!  Also, there was one report in SM's forum of a
specimen which had a small bit of flashing that interfered with the
stopper seqting quite right.  Since the body is all very nearly clear
plastic, it's not easy to see something like this.

Another thing I've noticed a few times while cleaning the CCD: if you
jostle the cup-sensing bit in the bottom, you may get the whole thing
to seat on an angle, which doesn't quite seal.  Seems unlikely this
would be happening consistently, though.

The vulnerabilities will come, a couple of them a week, for years and
years...until people stop looking for them.  Waiting six months isn't
going to make this OS [Windows XP] safer.  -- Bruce Schneier
