I am not the least bit worried.

  • The problem only exists for very long shutter times, which I don't use. The compartment access door is sealed so even in extremely bright light with normal shutter times the problem is negligible. 
  • If I did need very long shutter times, I would need a tripod. When the camera is on a tripod, and when the access door must be open I could drape a black cloth over the remote cord/compartment. Many experienced photographers who use very long shutter times cover their cameras with a black cloth anyway.
  • Fujifilm will fix the problem.

I will get my body fixed eventually, but I'm in no rush to do it.
