G Series Leaf Window Fault

My G10 is out of action due to the leaf seals becoming distorted and refusing to close.

After 3 years heavy use, I thought this was fair enough. So I bought a G16 as a replacement. Within a week I had the same problem, only this time the mechanism refused to open.
It's a shame that a camera as sturdy as the G10 should have such an Achilles heel. The G16 is noticeably more fragile in the body, but not 3 years' worth. And the battery gets alarmingly hot after only an hour's use. And they let in dust.
A fine camera, while they last.

Any similar problems?
