A77 front control dial - anyone else have this happen?

My A77 is sitting in Laredo service center right now. The 'rubber' around the control dial split. Seems to me that this should be a bit more durable. The A700 also has a rubberized grip on the dial, though my A350 is all plastic. I don't shoot any more with the A77 than with the A700, but I do shoot more manual and use the dials more. Freak incident or should I expect it again in a year?

Here's the photo of the damage:
