Larry,

Thanks for your observations.  I don't understand your use of the word "leverage" to this condition.  If the strap didn't pull the base of the camera away from the sides can you speculate what might have done this? If seems to me that there are three ways to open the gap shown.  That is force applied to the tripod stud and pulling away from the body (or the body moving away from the stud) - or - something inside the body pushing down.  I suppose that if someone took a screw driver to the gap and pried the two parts apart it could cause the condition. Of those three alternatives pulling on the tripod stud certainly seems the most probable here.
